EUGENE, Ore. -- A Springfield woman escaped from the Lane County Jail Tuesday, only to be brought back into custody with the help of a bystander in front of the jail, the Lane County Sheriff's Office said.
Amanda Prozinski, 29, escaped at about 2 p.m., the sheriff's office said. She allegedly assaulted the bystander as he attempted to help detain her.
Deputies said Prozinski was lodged in the jail on Monday, accused of methamphetamine and heroin possession. They said she was wearing jail-issued clothing when she broke out of the jail.
She now faces charges of second-degree escape, first-degree criminal mischief, fourth-degree assault and resisting arrest.
