It happened just before noon Thursday at Ingham County's 55th District Court. Police say a prisoner, 28-year-old Geoffrey Goodman, attacked and choked a court officer as the officer moved to put handcuffs on him. The attack left the officer unconscious, and Goodman then took off.
He got into an empty car waiting for him in the parking lot with the keys in it and led police on a chase. The pursuit ended at Valhalla Park. Police arrested him as he tried to flea on foot.
Police are investigating who left the vehicle with keys in it for Goodman. Doctors treated and released the officer attacked.
