CENTRAL CITY (AP) - Kentucky State Police say an escaped inmate was found riding as a passenger in a car police stopped.
A trooper pulled over a vehicle in Central City late Tuesday afternoon and arrested Anthony W. Hunt, who was taken into custody without incident. Hunt was charged with second-degree jail escape.
Muhlenberg County authorities said the 27-year-old Hunt walked away while on work release Monday from the county Opportunity Center.
Following his arrest, Hunt was taken to the Muhlenberg County Detention Center.
