MIAMI (WSVN) - A man that booked it from a Miami-Dade courthouse, Tuesday, is now behind bars.

Twenty-one-year-old Yakevis Jones appeared in court once again, Wednesday, after he took off running from a probation hearing at the Miami-Dade Court House.

According to prosecutors, Jones made it all the way to a Metrorail train station, located along Northwest 14th Street and 12th Avenue, before he was caught and taken into custody.

A judge added escape charges and a bond of $7,500 to his original charges.
