Police are looking for an Ohio prisoner who escaped from the Columbus Mental Hospital.

Jacob Davidson is accused of a shootout with a Bucyrus cop back in November.

COLUMBUS, Ohio. An Ohio prisoner accused of shooting with a police officer escaped from a Columbus psychiatric hospital on Thursday evening.

The Crawford County Sheriff’s Office said Jacob Davidson, 38, managed to escape from the Twin Valley Behavioral Health Hospital, located at 2200 W. Broad Street, shortly after 8 p.m.

As early as November 10, the Crawford and Morrow County Sheriff’s Office responded to shooting incidents in which one person was injured.

A description of the suspect vehicle was passed on to local law enforcement. A Bucyrus police officer spotted a vehicle matching the description.

After traffic was stopped, a shootout broke out between the driver, identified as Davidson, and the officer. Davidson was taken into custody without harm to either side.

Davidson was charged with felony assault, firing a firearm in or near prohibited premises, disrupting public services, and mishandling a firearm in a motor vehicle. He was sentenced to jail on $2 million bail.

On December 20, Davidson was transferred from the Crawford County Jail to Twin Valley Behavioral Health Hospital before escaping Thursday.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol has jurisdiction over the hospital and is investigating the incident.

The sheriff’s office said it was not known if Davidson was in possession of any weapons, but should be considered armed and dangerous.

Davidson is described as being 5’11”, weighing 160 pounds, with blue eyes and unkempt brown hair with a full beard.

If you see Davidson or have any information on his whereabouts, you are asked to contact local law enforcement or 911.

He was last seen wearing a red flannel shirt with a maroon T-shirt underneath, blue sweatpants, and black velcro tennis shoes.
