MONTAGUE, Texas (AP) - A North Texas sheriff's deputy wounded when he stopped a car driven by a paroled Colorado inmate during a manhunt is cleared to begin working.

Montague County deputy James Boyd in March pulled over a Cadillac driven by Evan Spencer Ebel, who had been linked to the slaying of Colorado's prison chief.

Montague County Sheriff Paul Cunningham said Thursday that he's "tickled" Boyd will be back to work Sunday.

Cunningham on Wednesday released a March 21 video from the dashboard camera in Boyd's patrol car along Texas 287. It shows Boyd approaching the passenger side of Ebel's car and then falling to the ground as three shots ring out.

Cunningham says Boyd will start in dispatch in accordance with an agreement with officials at the 27-year-old's rehabilitation center in Dallas.
