Oklahoma prisoner faces more charges after being shot while trying to flee at DFW airport

DALLAS (AP) -- An Oklahoma prisoner accused of threatening a judge faces more counts after being shot in a failed escape attempt during a flight change at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

Dallas County jail records show Brent Taff of Sapulpa, of Oklahoma, was being held without bond Saturday on charges of assault on a public servant and escape causing bodily injury.

Taff was free on bond in Oklahoma assault cases when he allegedly threatened a judge, was arrested in Utah and being returned home.

Tulsa County, Oklahoma, sheriff's Maj. Shannon Clark says Taff attacked a deputy Friday in a DFW airport restroom. The deputy shot Taff in the hand during a struggle. Another deputy subdued Taff.

The injured deputy was treated for head wounds and discharged Saturday.
