BROWNSVILLE, TN (WMC-TV) – Authorities have captured an inmate who escaped early Monday morning from the Haywood County Jail.
Kristopher Allen White, 23, escaped from the jail around 4:00 a.m. Monday, according to Sheriff Melvin Bond.
Bond said White apparently "shimmied" through the bars of his cell, and then used blankets to safely climb over a barbed wire fence.
"It appears he took his body and slipped through the bars of the cell," Bond said.
Bond said the bars in the cell were approximately four and a half inches apart.
"I still can't picture that," he said of the escape. "It's beyond my imagination to know how he succeeded in that."
