RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - A Reno man being sentenced for burglary ran from Washoe District Court Wednesday, and was quickly re-arrested.

58-year-old Will Kernan was being sentenced to prison time when he got away from custody and got about a block away before deputies arrested him.

Deputies say he had a loaded gun hidden in a plastic bag outside the building.

He is back in the Washoe County jail pending more charges.
