A jail inmate in New Jersey, was set to walk free before he was rearrested for punching 2 officers.

The man from Union City, was being released from a prison in Pennsylvania, when he decided to punch the officers on his way out of jail.

Sanchez was booked into jail for aggravated assault, assault of a prison officer, simple aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person and resisting arrest.
