Fox News reports:
Paulding County Sheriff Jason Landers said Saturday that FBI agents and U.S. Marshals have joined the search for Branden Powell, 32, after his escape around noon Friday on an 80-mile trip from a psychiatric hospital in Toledo to the Paulding County Jail in northwest Ohio.
Powell is armed, has a history of psychiatric problems and violent offenses, and he’s nowhere to be found.
While on transit to the county jail, Powell jumped over a seat to put the deputy driving the vehicle into a headlock, causing the deputy to crash into a ditch.
After a struggle, Powell managed to take the deputy’s gun and force the deputy to remove his restraints.

Powell then handcuffed the deputy to the steering wheel and disabled the van’s police radio and engine before fleeing with the deputy’s wallet, cellphone, gun and 30 rounds of ammunition, Landers said.
The deputy suffered minor injuries.
