While at the police department Anderson was allowed to use the bathroom and when exiting the bathroom, he attempted to escape through the back door. Due to his restraints, Anderson tripped and fell in the parking lot of the Fire Department. He was again taken into custody and transported to the Matagorda County Jail where he was booked in for Possession of a Controlled Substance, Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, and Escape While Arrested/Detained.
