GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Gainesville police are looking for a man who broke out of a squad car.
Police identified the suspect Monday as 34-year-old Robert Franklin Ellis. He was wanted in Indian River County for a house burglary there. He now faces additional charges of escape, resisting arrest without violence, providing false information to police, theft and criminal mischief.
Police say Ellis escaped from the squad car Sunday after his initial arrest. He was also shot with a Taser gun. K-9 units are helping in the search.
