The preliminary exam for Bob Bashara has been delayed Monday morning in the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice after an inmate stabbed a deputy and took another deputy prisoner, according to The Detroit Free Press.
The Frank Murphy Hall of Justice is on lockdown, and the facility was cleared.
Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon stated that about 8 a.m. a prisoner was being placed in a holding cell on the seventh floor of the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice when he used a comb as a weapon to stab the deputy "several times in the neck."
The suspect then took part of the deputy's clothes, and his keys, and escaped the building. He then carjacked a civilian and fled the scene.
The suspect, Derreck White, dumped the van in the area of Concord and Lafayette according to Detroit Police Chief James Craig. He was in court to be arraigned on armed robbery charges.
Napoleon said the deputy was in temporary serious condition with puncture wounds to the neck.
Maria Miller, spokeswoman for the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, stated in an email that the Bashara preliminary examination will be held at 1:30 p.m. Monday.
