A spokesman for Utah State Courts identified the man as Christopher Clay Rudd, 35, who was supposed to be appearing before a judge "for an order to show cause for skipping out on his rehab."

The security camera images also show a bailiff attempting to break Rudd's fall. Rudd appeared to have been bleeding from a head wound after the fall.

Mapleton Police arrested Rudd on April 26 for theft, possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person and drug-related charges.
