An east side shooting suspect is back in custody after a Houdini-like escape.

Police arrested Joehon Briggs, 27, on South Harding Street Wednesday.

Last week, Briggs was arrested for aggravated assault. He was cuffed to a chain in a room in the City-County building but was able to escape.

When a detective came back to the room, the cuffs were still there but Briggs wasn’t.

Briggs is now being held in the Marion County Jail.
