BELL COUNTY, Ky. (WVLT/WYMT) -- A man is back behind bars following an escape from the Bell County Detention Center.

The jailer says 24-year-old Joshua Green, of Middlesboro, got away while being booked around 7 PM Friday.

He says someone left the door open and Green ran out.

He was found only a half hour later near the Newtown Bridge.

His original charges were shoplifting and possession of a controlled substance.

He's now charged with tampering with physical evidence, escape, fleeing from police, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct.
