(WIS) - Body cam footage has been released by the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office, showing Curtis Green's arrest.

Green, 20, escaped the Orangeburg County Detention Center on May 19 when a guard was overpowered and assaulted. Tyshon Johnson, and Christopher Boltin, both 27, were recaptured in less than six days after the incident.

Green was captured on July 17 after 58 days on the run. 

OCSO Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said that Green stole a vehicle from Orangeburg, which led to his arrest. Calhoun County Sheriff Thomas Summers says the chase for the fugitive began in his jurisdiction.

After leading officers through several side roads, Green turned into Roosevelt Gardens apartment complex where he was apprehended after a low-speed collision with an Orangeburg County Sheriff's deputy. One OCSO deputy was injured during the pursuit.

When he was detained, he had a .380 pistol and a ski mask on him.

In addition to his original charge of murder, Green now faces from the OCSO a charge of escape, first-degree assault, and battery. He was further charged with failure to stop for a blue light and unlawful carrying of a weapon.

Calhoun County is charging Green with carjacking, pointing and presenting a firearm, failure to stop for a blue light, and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
