The man pictured at right is loose on the streets of the Bay Area after outrunning a corrections officer who was escorting him to take out the trash. He is Timothy Deshone Midgett, 40, and it's not yet clear what he was convicted for here, though the Chron notes he has a warrant for his arrest in Houston on narcotics charges.

The escape happened when a deputy sheriff was escorting Midgett to a basement trash bin, and Midgett ran out of a side door from the Hall of Justice, running east. The deputy gave chase but wasn't able to keep up. Midgett was serving a one-year sentence and was scheduled to be released on July 24.

Police are searching for him and have alerted other law enforcement agencies around the Bay Area. He's described as 6 feet, 3 inches tall, 165 lbs, with black and gray hair, and a mustache and goatee.
