Deadbeat Dad Jailed After Suicide Attempt

Tassie R. Butts, 29, is now back in custody after he failed to return to jail after work release Saturday night. He owes nearly $9300 in child support. His current wife tells police Butts held a knife to his own wrist, and refused to return to jail. She says he was upset because she had asked for a divorce.

Later, police caught him when he wrecked his wife's van on Glen Lily Road. They determined Butts did not have any stab wounds. He is now in custody.
