Morristown, Hamblen County (WVLT) -- U.S. Marshal's and the Hamblen County Sheriff's Department have arrested the last of seven men who escaped from the Hamblen County Jail on Tuesday.

Nathan Wayne Carroll was taken into custody at a trailer on North Bellwood Road around 11:00 last night.

He was located after the Sheriff's department received a tip on his where-abouts.

Carroll had been charged with misdemeanors and was not considered dangerous.

He was one of seven men who escaped after assaulting a Hamblen County jailer on Tuesday night.

The jailer suffered abrasions and bruises from head to toe, but is now doing fine.

Paul Young was the first of the escapee's taken back into custody Wednesday morning.

Hours later Joshua Adkins flagged down a sheriff's deputy and turned himself in, apparently telling law enforcement he was tired of running.

Wednesday evening, Michael Curtis Long was found sitting with a group of people around a bonfire in Morristown.

When he escaped, Long had been serving 141 months of federal time for the armed robbery of the BP Fast Stop in Morristown nearly a year ago.

Three more escaped inmates were taken back into custody on Thursday.

Brandon Scott Collins turned himself in just a few hours after Michael Jesse Banner was arrested.

Later that evening U.S. Marshals arrested Nicholas Kyle Short in Lubbock, Texas.

He is still there, awaiting extradition back to the Hamblen County jail.
