SHERMAN, TX -- Tim Coleman, the Collin County inmate who walked away from a roadside work detail on Friday, is again behind bars Monday morning.

Coleman, 43, has been on the run since Friday when he walked away from a work detail in Collin County. Authorities say Coleman was working near County Road 319 and FM 3286 when he disappeared.

Coleman was in jail serving a sentence for DWI. They had already revoked his probation once, but on Friday he was able to escape his work convoy.

Officials said he was from Sherman, and that's exactly where they found him Monday morning around 1:30 a.m.

Just after one o'clock Monday morning, a Sherman officer tried to stop Coleman on North Rusk Street. He was driving a tan Chevy pick up.

Coleman then took off, before he finally stopped a few blocks away on Lincoln Street, but then took off on foot.

Police finally stopped him near Piner Middle School on West Houston. Officers had to use a stun-gun to finally get him under control.

He then gave them a false name.

Coleman will now await extradition back to Collin County. He is currently in the Grayson County Jail.
