Jail escapee in Adrian turns himself in


ADRIAN — An inmate who escaped from the Lenawee County Courthouse almost two weeks ago while handcuffed turned himself in Friday, authorities said.

Scott Henning, 27, of Swanton walked into the county sheriff’‍s office about 1 p.m. and was arrested without incident, Sheriff Jack Welsh said. Mr. Henning was to be returned to the jail, authorities said.

The inmate escaped about 10:15 a.m. June 9 when a holding cell door lock malfunctioned, city officials said. He was unarmed.

The sheriff’s office‍ said Mr. Henning had been sentenced to 93 days in the Lenawee County jail for violating probation on a reckless driving charge. While awaiting transportation back to the jail, he walked out a back door after the door on the holding cell he was in did not lock.
