WICHITA COUNTY, TX (KAUZ) -

Wichita Falls Police have confirmed the man accused of stealing a WFPD vehicle and crashing it off TX-79 has been booked into the Wichita County Jail.
Around 11:15 a.m. Cody Workman, 28, was discharged from United Regional Health Care System and taken to the jail without incident. 

Workman was booked for Aggravated Assault on a Peace Officer, Evading Arrest and Theft over $30,000 Under $150,000.
On Wednesday, August 9, local authorities were looking for Workman after a 'walk-off' patient was reported that morning from the Texas State Hospital campus in Wichita Falls.

Later that afternoon, Workman was spotted near Rathgeber Road and Stone Lake. Shortly after he was spotted an officer on the scene made a call for 'shots fired' and other officers responded to the area.

WFPD said this is when Workman was able to gain access to the officer's vehicle and fled the area. The unit came to a stop in the 2000 block of TX-79. 

Workman was shot once in the lower torso during the incident. He was rushed into surgery and was being treated at United Regional until his release this Thursday morning. Stay with Newschannel 6 as we continue to follow this developing story.
