IBERVILLE PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

It took a jury less than 10 minutes on Tuesday to find a man guilty of aggravated escape and aggravated second degree battery, according to 18th Judicial District Attorney Richard Ward. 

Caleb Armstrong, 22, represented himself in the case and faces up to 25 years for both charges.

Armstrong was arrested on May 11, 2013 by the Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office on an assault and weapons charge. When he arrived at the Iberville Parish Jail, he escaped from his handcuffs and hit the arresting officer with them before fleeing the jail. 

The officer had several lacerations and fractures to his face from the attack.

Armstrong is set to be sentencing on September 9.
