LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - An inmate who escaped from a Kentucky jail has been arrested in Tennessee.
Police tell WKYT-TV that Nathan Pierce was found hiding in a shower of a home in Lafolette, Tenn., on Friday. They credit a tip for helping them find him.
Police in Scott County, Ky., had been looking for Pierce since July 4, when he escaped while painting a door that led out of the facility.
Pierce is now awaiting extradition.
