An inmate at the Eunice City Jail escaped this afternoon.
Eunice Police Chief Ronald Dies said the inmate, Jody Vallier, was taken to the courtyard for his daily outdoor time. When officers tried to bring Vallier back inside the jail, he took off running.
He threw his jail jumpsuit on the ground and was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and black boxer shorts, though Dies said he has likely changed clothes by now.
On Thursday, Vallier was charged with resisting an officer, obscenity and unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling.
Officers are using a K-9 to search for Vallier.
Vallier is not considered to be armed or dangerous.
Anyone with information on Vallier's whereabouts is asked to call the Eunice Police Department.
