A day after he was arraigned on carjacking charges, a Hispanic is back behind bars after police say he escaped court in handcuffs and carjacked a second person

Twenty-five-year-old Adriano Ortiz-Columbo managed to leave the court house after his arraignment on charges that include carjacking, assault and battery and failure to stop for police. Police say that he walked across the street and swiped an SUV from the Autozone parking lot. Officers tracked him down a short time later. He was hiding underneath a trailer when they rearrested him. Ortiz-Columbo has been arraigned on a new round of charges. He is being held without bail. Police say that because of his attempted escape and other charges, the Latino could be looking at a lengthy prison sentence.
