ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Police are looking into an arrest that may have landed a suspect in the hospital. 

Quadrick Jones, 20, was arrested early Tuesday morning after police discovered he had an active warrant.

But Quadrick's mother is now questioning what exactly happened during the arrest that left her son injured. 

Quadrick's mother Tammy Jones said because he was visibly injured, the Dougherty County Jail would not admit him.  

So now, she said her son is on the loose and she wants answers. 

Tammy Jones admitted Quadrick has had a rocky past. 

"At 17, he left and went to prison. So basically he has been in and out of jail for probation violations," she said. 

She said Quadrick was on probation for aggravated battery and burglary charges the night Albany Police stopped him on the 300 block of South Van Buren Street around 1:15 a.m. 

"He was going to Checkers to get something to eat," said Tammy, "The officers saw him, they made contact with him, they ran his name, they realized he had a probation violation warrant, so therefore they detained him at that particular point in time."

Tammy said some time between handcuffing Quadrick and walking him to the patrol car, something happened. 

"He said, on the way walking to the car, the handcuffs were too tight. So he wiggled.  And when he wiggled, they automatically just bum rushed him and took him to the ground," she said.  

Tammy said that left her son with visible wounds on his face.

When officers took him to the jail, he could not be admitted because of his injuries. 

"They took him to Phoebe, and basically said, you can get seen if you want to, gave him a citation for interfering with the officer, and left him there," said Tammy. 

She said Quadrick left the hospital without being treated and got a ride home from a Good Samaritan.  

She also said he tried to turn himself in again, but said the jail would not admit him because of his injuries. 

Tammy said Quadrick left the hospital without being treated and got a ride home from a Good Samaritan.  

Tammy said she was told since the state warrant could not be immediately confirmed, they did not arrest Quadrick on that probation violation charge.  

"I understand police have a job to do. I understand that he has an active warrant.  He should have served that warrant," she said.   "He should not be out here free when you had him in custody in the beginning.  Now he's on the run." 

The state warrant out for Quadrick is still active. 

We have reached out to the Albany Police Department and the city's attorney to get a comment and a copy of the dash cam video. 

We are told they are looking into this incident right now. 

Tammy said she is planning to seek legal advice.
