HAYS, Kan. -

A man from Colorado who had just been found guilty of a drug charge decided he didn't want to hang around a Kansas county courthouse.

Ellis County officials say Nathan Beougher of Colorado Springs, Colo., took off running Thursday after a judge revoked his bond and ordered him jailed for intent to distribute marijuana.

Beougher was subdued by two law officers before he got out of the courthouse, with several other officers arriving on the scene to help. The incident happened at 5:30 p.m., shortly after most people had left the courthouse. No one was injured.

The Hays Daily News report county officials have been pushing courthouse security as one of the reasons to pass a proposed sales tax, which would be partially used for courthouse renovations.
