NEW ORLEANS- An inmate who escaped authorities by walking away from a municipal court security line has been found and arrested again.
    
The Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office says authorities found 38-year-old Lionel Trumble at a New Orleans residence Wednesday morning with the help of the U.S. Marshals. Officials say Trumble still had leg shackles on his ankles.
    
Trumble was arrested on charges of simple escape and criminal damage to property. Officials also arrested 59-year-old Sidney Diggs on charges of harboring a fugitive. It's unclear if they have attorneys.
    
According to a sheriff's office news release, Trumble was transported to the court for a hearing on Feb. 29 and somehow managed to walk away. Sheriff Marlin Gusman suspended a deputy in connection with the procedural failure that allowed Trumble to escape.
