A man who escaped from the Pike County Detention Center in 2006 was arrested Wednesday after being pulled over for a traffic violation.
After making the stop around 8:30 p.m., Kentucky State Police officer Kevin Belcher learned that Israel Timothy Boyd, 45, had a warrant for his arrest.
Boyd escaped from the Pike County Detention Center's work release program in 2006. He was arrested and charged with second degree escape.
He was lodged in the Floyd County Detention Center.
