BUTLER, Alabama — An Alabama sheriff says all three inmates accused of escaping from a west Alabama jail by overpowering a guard have now been captured.
Sheriff's officials said the men assaulted and choked the guard, wrapping his head in a towel and spraying him in the face with a cleaning solution during the escape early Saturday morning.
Choctaw County Sheriff Tom Abate told The Associated Press early Monday morning that 23-year-old Demarcus Woodard -- the last inmate still on the run -- was captured in Tuscaloosa around 11:45 p.m. Sunday.
Abate said publicity about the escape led to numerous tips from the public, one of which paid off and led authorities to Woodard.
The other inmates -- 23-year-old Justin Gordon and 32-year-old Gemayel Culbert -- were captured over the weekend.
