A 20-year-old Beaumont man briefly fled from a transporting officer outside the Indio County Jail Wednesday, June 14, before he was captured nearby, according to a Riverside County Sheriff’s Department news release.
Deputies had gone to an address in the 79100 block of Desert Stream Drive in La Quinta in response to an altercation call just before 4 a.m. and arrested Kevin Rosales on suspicion of felony domestic violence.
Rosales was taken to Indio where he fled from outside the jail and was found by deputies and Indio police officers a few minutes later, according to the release.
He was taken back to the jail and also held on suspicion of escape after arrest. No details were shared about how he slipped away from the officer.
He remained in custody in lieu of posting $35,000 bail, according to court records.
