An inmate is back in custody less than a day after he escaped from a prison facility in southeast of Birmingham. The Department of Corrections says 47-year-old Tracy Obrian Blackburn was arrested Monday night in the Coosa County community of Weogufka. An update from the agency says Blackburn surrendered without violence. Blackburn was arrested about 19 hours after he escaped from a work-release center early Monday in Childersburg. The prison system didn’t say how the Jemison man got out or provide details on his arrest. He was serving five years for an assault conviction in Shelby County.
