Inmate Captured After Fleeing Custody During Visit To Dentist

GREENVILLE, Ky. (AP) - An inmate who escaped during a visit to a western Kentucky dentist is back in custody.

James C. Savage, 42, was at a dentist's office in Greenville just before 9:30 a.m. CST, yesterday, when he went out a back window and fled on foot, Kentucky State Police said.

Savage was in the Muhlenberg County Detention Center awaiting disposition of charges including first-degree robbery, first-degree wanton endangerment, second-degree unlawful imprisonment and violating parole. He was also wanted for second-degree escape, police said.

Police have not released details about Savage's capture.

    Ahhh..the ol.."I'm going to the doctor/dentist" trick. Very clever. I can't wait for the "I'm going to the massage therapist" trick. That is a very clever ruse as well.
