A Hopkins County Jail inmate who escaped from a community service detail last night was found and arrested in Hopkinsville this morning.
A member of the public called the ECC around 9:30 this morning reporting she had seen 32-year old escaped inmate Keith Allen Stafford of Madisonville near the car wash on Clinic Drive just behind the Max Fuel Express.
Stafford had been sought since about 10pm, when he walked away from the detail. Stafford was serving a 120 day sentence for misdemeanor assault and was scheduled for release on March 30th.
Hopkinsville Police set up a perimeter around the area of the car wash and nearby stores until a police K9 was able to find Stafford around 10:40. Police arrested Stafford and he was to be taken back to Hopkins County.
