A man is in jail after he escaped from College Station Police Officers while waiting to go to jail.

Right before midnight on Saturday, Kenneth Eric Wallen was arrested near the 200 block of College Main for public intoxication. Officers say he was taken to the mobile booking station on the same street and placed in the transport van to go to the College Station jail when he fled from police.
Officials said he was able to escape on foot while officers completed paperwork.

Wallen was detained once again after a short on foot pursuit and was charged with escape as well as public intoxication.
