ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A witness testifying during a Dougherty County Superior Court trial Wednesday took off running from the courthouse.

Prosecutors said the witness was testifying during the child molestation trial for Roger Bowen when Judge Willie Lockette called for a short recess.

Prosecutors said the witness ran out of the courtroom, and then right out the courthouse front door.

Sheriff's Deputies chased the witness, but could not catch him.

Judge Lockette declined to file charges against the witness to bring him back to court.
