Attempted Escape

Posted on 10th July 2013 at 16:03

Auston Wade Jessee, 18, of Longview is facing at least two felony counts, after he tussled with law enforcement officers during an apparent escape attempt that took place yesterday morning at the Hall of Justice. Deputies say that a 17 year-old girl apparently tried to leave the facility shortly after 10 am, after it was directed that she be taken into custody. A “Code Red” was called while Jessee allegedly fought with Deputies; both he and the 17 year-old were subdued and taken into custody after just a few minutes. Jessee is now being held in the Cowlitz County Jail on felony charges of intimidating a public servant and third-degree assault. He’s also charged with obstructing an officer and resisting arrest. The girl was booked into the Juvenile Services Center; her charges haven’t been disclosed.
