FORT SMITH, Ark. – Authorities say an 18-year-old who escaped with two other teenagers from a juvenile detention center in Pine Bluff after beating a guard has been caught in Oklahoma.
Sequoyah County Sheriff Ron Lockhart says Brandon Henderson was arrested Monday morning after a chase that began in Fort Smith and ended on Highway 64 between Muldrow and Sallisaw.
Lockhart says Henderson was driving a U-Haul truck. Other details were not released.
Officials say Henderson escaped Saturday night with 15-year-old Nicolas Dismuke and 16-year-old Christopher Beverage after beating guard Leonard Wall and attacking another guard. Wall died Sunday while the second guard was treated and released.
Dismuke and Beverage were caught Sunday afternoon in the Fort Smith area.
