Amarillo, TX - An escaped Oklahoma inmate now sits in the Oldham County jail after a brief chase. 

DPS troopers spotted 37-year-old Michael Rhodes driving down I-40 near Bushland just after 7:00 Wednesday night.

Rhodes was arrested and booked into the Oldham County jail.

He escaped in a sheriff's vehicle from Lincoln County, Oklahoma Wednesday afternoon while on work duty.
