UPDATE: Manhunt for escaped inmate in Catoosa County continues

FORT OGLETHORPE, Ga. — Patrol cars lined Thomas Road in Fort Oglethorpe early Monday morning. Hours before, Joshua Lee Bradford, 28, managed to escape in to the nearby woods.

Bradford, who was arrested Sunday evening on a slew of charges including making terrorist threats, discharging a firearm and criminal trespassing, began complaining of medical problems after he was booked in to the Dade County Jail. He was taken to Hutcheson Medical Center for treatment.

"He had to go to the bathroom we understand and the jailer was escorting him," explains Dade County Chief Detective Don Hicks.
