Kentucky jail escapee caught in Claiborne County
The Bell County Jailer confirmed to WYMT that a Bell County escapee has been caught.
Matthew Price, 45, who escaped August 21, was arrested in Claiborne County, Tennessee around 4:45 p.m. Friday.
Price originally escaped with the help of David Mosley, 41. According to jail officials, they used a plastic rig to get out of their cell. The two inmates then used a bleach mixture to spray a female jail staffer in the eyes and assaulted a male staffer.
Mosley was caught the next day in Pineville thanks to an anonymous tip.
Price is in the Claiborne County Jail awaiting extradition back to Bell County.
