FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Fargo police say they’ve arrested an escaped jail inmate from Clay County, Minnesota.

Authorities say the 29-year-old inmate ditched a work detail in Moorhead and fled on foot into Fargo Thursday afternoon.

A citizen called police when the inmate, still in orange jail clothing, was seen running in downtown Fargo. An officer found the inmate and arrested the fugitive.
