Authorities have captured an inmate who escaped from Oklahoma Department of Corrections custody.
Douglas Wilson, 51, was found inside a car in the parking lot of the Osage Casino in Ponca City about 2 a.m. Wednesday, DOC spokesman Alex Gerszewski said.
Wilson was returned to the minimum-security John Lilley Correctional Center in Boley, where he was serving time for aggravated DUI. He may be moved to a higher-security facility with additional charges, Gerszewski said.
Wilson reportedly escaped while on a work assignment Tuesday morning in Muskogee, about 140 miles from where he was found.
