Escaped Inmate Caught

The search is over for a dangerous inmate who overpowered a jail guard.

41-year-old Robert Waddell had been on the run since Thursday. He had been serving time for rape.

Police say he escaped the Breckinridge County Jail by complaining of chest pains. On the way to the hospital, Waddell poked a deputy with something sharp, then took control of the vehicle.

He drove the deputy several miles before dumping him in a rural area, stealing his shoes and driving away.

Waddell was found Saturday night in Breckinridge County.
