CHOCTAW CO., OK -- We've learned how a Hugo man helped put the second Pushmataha County escapee back behind bars.

Choctaw County Sheriff Terry Park said he received a call from Hugo resident, George Holder, last Friday saying that he had seen escapee Clayton Scraper on his father's ranch just North of Soper.

Holder was able to get Scraper in his truck telling him that he would take him to Atoka, but Scraper didn't know the sheriff was waiting for him down the road.

Choctaw Co. Sheriff Terry Park said, "Scraper sees the decals on the side of the truck, the race was on. I mean he just bailed out in one move, George's truck was still moving. I mean he hadn't even came to a stop."

Scraper was quickly apprehended and taken to the Choctaw County Jail.
