Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost earlier has deleted what appeared to be a sarcastic post on his personal Twitter account while responding to a report about an inmate dressed in a lab coat who tried to escape a troubled county jail in Cleveland.

Cleveland.com reports Yost on Tuesday shared a link to a Cleveland.com story about the escape try and commented, “Easy bust. I mean, what are the odds that a nurse would actually be at the jail?”

It’s unclear when the post was deleted.

Yost’s office is investigating the Cuyahoga County Corrections Center and prosecuting current and former officials. Problems with medical staffing and inmate care are part of the investigation.

Yost’s office did not return messages seeking comment.
