FREMONT, Mich. (WOOD) — A Newaygo County Jail inmate who escaped custody at a hospital and was recaptured after crashing a stolen motorcycle now faces additional charges.

Authorities on Monday authorized two counts of second-degree home invasion, a count of breaking and entering of a building with intent and a count of auto theft against Ian Riley-Jackson Davis.

Those are in addition to the charges he already faced at the time of his escape, which included multiple felonies including assaulting and obstructing a police officer.

Davis, 32, took off from a Fremont hospital last week after being taken there for treatment of seizures. He outran the deputy guarding him and hospital security, then evaded searchers for about four hours.

He allegedly broke into a home, stole the keys to a motorcycle and then took the bike. Only about a block away, he crashed the motorcycle into an oil tanker truck. He was injured in the crash and taken back to the hospital.

Arraignment on the new charges has not yet been scheduled.
