Police say a man who escaped from the Rockland County courthouse is in custody.
They say Christopher Palumbo took off and was found a few hours later in New City.
Palumbo was safely returned to Rockland Psychiatric Center.
According to the Daily News, this is not the first time Palumbo made headlines. Back in 2014, the paper says Palumbo, who is a former Marine, was caught with a shotgun at a Brooklyn subway platform where he said he was trying to "stop bloodshed."
