Inmates captured after taking on in patrol car

FAYETTE, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri county jail inmate was captured after taking off in a deputy's patrol vehicle.

Authorities say a Pettis County deputy was driving two males and a female to state prisons in Fulton and Vandalia Thursday when inmate Ronald W. Greer of Sedalia convinced him to stop at a rest stop in Cooper County. Greer allegedly assaulted the deputy, took keys and a weapon and fled.

Howard County Sheriff Charlie Polson says the two other inmates stayed in the vehicle and had no role in the assault.  More
