DAVIDSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — A 38-year-old inmate is back in custody after escaping from custody while being treated at Nashville General Hospital following her arrest, the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday.

Stephanie Raymer was charged on Sunday with felony probation violation. She was booked into the Metro jail in downtown Nashville Sunday and was admitted to Nashville General Hospital at Meharry the next day, according to sheriff’s office spokesperson, Karla West.

She was apprehended Wednesday afternoon by Metro Police after escaping Nashville General Hospital Wednesday morning.

Due to a medical condition, West said the department’s policy did not allow for the use of restraints on Raymer. Video reportedly showed Raymer walk out of her hospital room around 4 a.m. Wednesday.

Raymer has a long criminal history dating back to 2001, including drug offenses, aggravated robbery and aggravated assault charges, the sheriff’s office said.

She now faces an escape charge for her actions on Wednesday.
