      Police escapee appears in court

      Ice Lake in Iron River

      The man in custody who escaped the Northstar Hospital and attempted to flee by swimming Ice Lake in Iron River appeared in Iron County Court on Wednesday for arraignment and preliminary examination.

      Twenty-two-year-old Jordan Luckey was arraigned on three files of multiple felony and misdemeanor charges, including escaping from jail, malicious destruction of police or fire property, resisting and obstructing an officer, and illegal entry.

      Wednesday in court, his attorney requested a forensic examination of Luckey's psychological status for competency to stand trial and for criminal responsibility. Luckey pleaded not guilty to one misdemeanor count of illegal entry.

      His bond is set at $100,000 cash.
