Daytona, Fla. (WVLT) -- What apparently began as a jail-break to see mother has ended after A five state chase.
Fugitive Christopher Daniel Gay has been caught in Florida after a journey that police say saw him steal the tour bus of country singer Crystal Gayle, and drive it all the way to the Daytona Motor Speedway.
Authorities say Christopher Daniel Gay escaped from an inmate transport van near Hardeeville, South Carolina last week. The reason for his escape was to apparently see his ailing mother just outside of Nashville. Gay was spotted yesterday at the Daytona Motor Speedway driving Gayle's tour bus into the infield of the world famous track.
Gay is now in police custody and he will face several new charges including Grand Theft Auto. No information is yet known about how he was caught but he is currently being held at the Volusia County Jail in Daytona Florida.
