Texas authorities fanned out Wednesday in a manhunt for a prisoner who police say wriggled out of custody in a Walmart parking lot by snapping his eyeglasses and using the jagged edge to stab an officer guarding him.
The state quickly placed the prisoner, Alberto Morales, on its list of 10 most-wanted fugitives and offered a $10,000 reward. The state said he should be considered armed and dangerous.
Morales, 41, was being flown from Miami to Nevada on Monday to serve a prison sentence for aggravated sexual assault. Two Miami detectives were flying with him, with a connection in Houston.
