A New London man who has allegedly tried to harm himself four times in recent months while incarcerated at the Huron County Jail has been charged with attempted aggravated robbery for an incident at a Toledo hospital.
Jamichael Randleman, 21, was transported to that Toledo hospital Sunday after he jumped from a bench in the booking area at the Huron County Jail and then complained of lower body injuries. (NOTE: To see video of the jump, watch the video on the player to the right of this story.)
While shackled to a hospital bed in Toledo, with only one free hand, Randleman attempted to obtain Deputy Lindsay Miles' firearm.
Sheriff Dane Howard said Miles had to use force to secure her weapon.
As a result, Randleman has been charged with aggravated robbery through the Lucas County Prosecutor's Office.
This charge is a first-degree felony.
Capt. Ted Patrick said Wednesday Randleman currently is housed at the Huron County Jail, but will soon be transferred to Lucas County.
Randleman has not tried again to injure himself.
"No, he is quite calm," Lt. Chris Stanfield said. "He's up in observation. He's fine."
Patrick said Miles is OK after the altercation.
"She had some bumps and bruises," he said.
Stanfield said the jail is no longer on lockdown.
The jail can hold up to 134 inmates. Wednesday's population was 90.
Neither Stanfield nor Patrick had an update on Concepcion Hernandez, 23, of Plymouth, who on Monday jumped about 20 feet from a security fence at the jail in a separate attempt to injure himself.
Hernandez was transferred to a Toledo hospital and has not returned.
Patrick said once Hernandez returns, he must serve his 15-day sentence on a domestic violence charge.
