Prisoner escapes custody wearing adult diaper

DAYTON Oh Jan 16, 2008 — A Dayton man who was in custody of the Montgomery County Sheriff's office while being treated at Miami Valley Hospital left the hospital and took a cab home while wearing a hospital gown and an adult diaper.
Dayton police eventually found Christopher Stewart, 45, nearly six miles away, Monday night when they were called to his home in the 1900 block of Shaftesbury Road. Sheriff's officials said a private security guard let Stewart leave the hospital but hospital officials are not sure who actually had control and custody of the prisoner.

According to police reports, officers originally arrested Stewart for felonious assault, kidnapping and resisting arrest for an incident that occurred about 7:10 a.m. Sunday at his home.
While being held in the Montgomery County Jail on Monday, sheriff's deputies transported Stewart to Miami Valley Hospital for "unknown reasons," Dayton police Officer Matthew Locke said in a report. "Stewart escaped from the hospital where he was waiting to be treated and returned to his residence."
Police were called to the Shaftesbury address about 7:35 p.m. Monday. When officers arrived, they heard "yelling and screaming coming from inside the house." Several screaming women told police Stewart was in the bedroom.
Police tried talking Stewart out of the house but when he failed to respond released a police dog into the house. The dog found Stewart in a closet and bit him several times during a struggle with Stewart.
Locke noted in his report that he struck Stewart once in the mouth in attempt to gain control of Stewart, who he said kept resisting. Stewart was arrested.
Stewart's wife told police her husband came home from the hospital in a cab while wearing "hospital gown pants and an adult diaper." He started yelling and breaking items in the house because he was mad about his wife and her daughter calling police Sunday after he shot his firearm into another house.
The wife told police that she fixed her husband some soup to calm him down. After he went into the bedroom, the women snuck outside and called police, the report said.
Stewart was taken to Grandview Hospital to be treated for the dog bites, where he was returned to the custody of the sheriff's deputies.
