WHITEVILLE, NC (WWAY) — One of the troubled young men with ties to R.C. Soles is back in trouble and in the hospital.

Maj. Lewis Hatcher says Wright was in court for some prior charges. Hatcher says a judge ordered Wright held for drug testing. He says during a conference with his attorney in a jury room, Wright threw himself through the window and landed outside.

Hatcher says Wright was taken to the hospital. He said he did not believe any of Wright’s injuries were life threatening. There’s no word on his condition.

Hatcher says Wright will likely face a charge of damaging county property and possibly an escape charge.
