A Beaumont man arrested Wednesday on suspicion of domestic violence escaped while being transported to county jail, but his freedom was short-lived.

Rosales was transported to the Riverside County jail in Indio, but fled from the transporting officer just prior to being booked, said sheriff's Sgt. Chris Wilson. Sheriff's deputies, with assistance from the Indio Police Department, conducted a search of the area and located the suspect ``several minutes later, uninjured, within proximity to the jail facility,'' Wilson said.
