Lexington police have arrested a man accidentally released from the Fayette County Detention Center last month.
Police say Fayette County Sheriff's Office deputies transferred Rodney D. Bell, 28, from the Shelby County Detention Center to the Fayette jail on a contempt of court warrant back on April 5. Officials released Bell after he posted a $1,000 bond. But on April 8, officials realized he was also being held in Shelby County on a federal holder by the ATF and should not have been released.
Police arrested Bell just after 1 a.m. Friday and returned him to custody on a federal charge.
