Escaped inmate

A handcuffed suspect fled into the woods of Copiah County Sunday afternoon leading troopers on a manhunt before being recaptured hours later.

MHP combed the woods along I-55 near a Wesson truck stop for more than three hours.

Corporal Odis Easterling says 61-year-old Larry Jarrell was taken into custody for intoxication. He was handcuffed when he broke away and ran into nearby woods.

Jarrell was not considered dangerous, but managed to make his way through the rough terrain in handcuffs.

Easterling says Jarrell was found walking north on I-55 and was apprehended without incident sometime before 3:30 p.m.
