A grand jury has come back with a decision to charge an escapee who made a run for freedom last month. Arcade Comeaux now faces felony escape and two aggravated kidnapping charges. Comeaux somehow got hold of a gun and overpowered two guards during a medical transport on November 30. He was on the run for a week before he was found hiding in a bus barn in northeast Houston.

Several guards have been fired. Investigators are still looking into how he was able to get the gun.
