A Warren County Jail inmate who got caught in razor wire while trying to escape has been bound to the grand jury.
The inmate, Edward L. Fults, waived his right to a preliminary hearing before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke and was bound on charges of escape and vandalism.
He is charged for breaking out of his cell and crawling through a duct system before breaking through concrete blocks to get access to the exercise yard. Guards say other inmates were making noise to cover his escape prompting them to do a walk through. It was at that time an officer saw Fults get hung in the wire atop the perimeter fence. He was taken into custody.
