Joshua Robertson Appears in Court

The Eau Claire man charged after escaping handcuffs and driving off in a squad car appeared in court Tuesday.


25-year-old Joshua Robertson was "bound over for arraignment."


According to the criminal complaint, on January 28, Robertson and a female passenger were pulled over for speeding when a k-9 detected drugs.


A search led to the discovery of two pounds and $40,000 worth of crystal meth.


While Robertson was alone in the back of the state patrol cruiser, he was able to move his handcuffs in front of him, get into the driver's seat of the car, and drive eight miles away.


Robertson is set to be back in court in April.
