PICAYUNE, MS (AP) - Authorities say a 31-year-old Pearl River County inmate who escaped from a hospital over the weekend has been captured in Hancock County.

Scooter Robinson, of Carriere, complained about a medical ailment Saturday and was taken to Highland Community Hospital where authorities say an accomplice allegedly met him.

Pearl River County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Shane Tucker says Robinson's girlfriend, 39-year-old Michelle Morris, was waiting outside the hospital with a car.

After doctors treated Robinson, he was being escorted back to the transport vehicle, wearing ankle shackles when he allegedly ran to the car Morris had parked near the transport vehicle.

Authorities say Robinson jumped in the driver's seat and sped off. He was arrested about 11 p.m. Saturday in Hancock County.
