A Fayette County jail escapee is back in jail after a Thursday afternoon standoff, Georgetown police said.
Crystal Gail McCarty was arrested when a special response team entered the house after a standoff of more than three hours, Georgetown police Lt. Robert Swanigan said.
Also arrested in the house at Main Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard was Darren Wilson, who is charged with hindering prosecution and apprehension, Swanigan said.
McCarty, who was in the Fayette jail on charges of criminal trespass and a probation violation, was released in June on a medical pass but had not returned.
Never miss a local story.
Georgetown police encountered McCarty several days ago when officers responded to a dispute at the house, but she had given them another name, Swanigan said. Police later learned her true identity and got a warrant to enter the house and look for her.
The special response team was called because McCarty had told neighbors and relatives "that she was not going back to jail, and that if she did it would be for a murder charge this time," Swanigan said.
McCarty and Wilson were being held in the Scott County jail in lieu of bonds.
