Escaped Inmate Recaptured in Etowah County

An inmate who escaped from the Etowah County Detention Center over the weekend has been recaptured. Jimmy Green of Wellington escaped from the detention center early Sunday morning by using a garbage can to climb over a fence. The fence is temporary due to ongoing renovations at the facility and does not have the usual concertina wire.

Green is serving time for Attempting to Elude and being a violent felon in possession of a pistol. He was recaptured on Riverside Drive near Gadsden State Community College Sunday evening.
