Maui Community Correctional Center inmate KRISTOPHER Sharrott was being transported to the Wailuku court for a pretrial hearing on Robery 1 and Theft 2.
The transport van arrived at court at approximately 8:25 am.
As Adult Corrections Officers were unloading the van Sharrott immediately tried to run.
An Adult Correction Officer was quick to react, pursued him about 100 yards and caught him.
Inmate Sharrott was fully shackled during transport but somehow managed to get his leg shackles off.
How he got his leg shackles off is under investigation.
Sheriffs are conducting the final investigation.
Sharrott will be charged with Escape.
