WATCH: Suspect facing drug charges makes desperate attempt to escape courtroom

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man accused of trafficking cocaine is in even more trouble after leaping over several benches and attacking deputies during a court appearance Thursday afternoon.

According to police records, 32-year-old Mario Guzman was in court on Nov. 6 answering to charges of trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. When Guzman heard he was going to be sent to jail, he suddenly tried to bolt from the courtroom.

The arrest report states that Guzman attacked three officers that tried to stop him. Deputies used a taser to subdue Guzman, who was led to a holding cell.

He's now facing more charges, including three counts of attempted assault and one count of attempted criminal mischief.

Guzman remains in custody at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $5,000 full cash bond.
