HUDSPETH COUNTY - Three inmates are back behind bars after trying to bust free from the Hudspeth County Jail on Monday night and leading deputies on a wild ride.

First, the three guys fought and took down two guards and escaped.

Then they stole a patrol car and led authorities on high speed chase down Interstate 10 and into El Paso County.

A deputy who was laying down tire spikes was hit by a truck and hurt her shoulder.

State Troopers, Sheriff's Deputies and the Border Patrol were all involved in the chase.

State troopers were able to lay down spikes and arrest the would-be escapees.

No word on what charges they will face.
