A Perry County man who escaped from the Clay County Detention Center last week was apprehended at his home in Scuddy Thursday morning, police said.
Twenty-one-year-old Ronnie Mitchell Everage, of Scuddy, escaped from the Clay County jail on Saturday, July 15 when officials at the jail said he walked off from a work detail assigned to clean offices and entrances at the facility. The guard assigned to the detail gave chase, but was unable to capture Everage.
According to police, Kentucky State Police Troopers Ira Napier and Ronnie Long with Post 13 in Hazard located and arrested Everage at his home. No details as to the nature of his capture were released.
Everage was transported back to the Clay County Detention Center where he will await to face an additional charge of second-degree escape, which could bring an additional one to five years to his sentence if found guilty.
According to court records, Everage was initially in jail after he was judged to have violated his probation in April following a guilty plea in Perry District Court in regards to a fourth-degree assault charge. Everage was serving five years of probation after entering a guilty plea to theft by unlawful taking over $300 in a 2004 case in Perry Circuit Court.
