Menges told Goodnight that one of the courthouse's entrances had been blocked by 10 concrete drainage pipes, placed there on Goodnight's order, according to the Perspective. The police had been unable to transport "dangerous" prisoners through the entrance, Menges said.

He then ruled Goodnight in contempt of court and placed him in the county jail until the pipes were removed, the Perspective reported.

The newspaper posted an update later Tuesday afternoon that the pipes had been cleared from the entrance, which would allow for Goodnight's release. No word yet on whether he has been.
