Authorities have captured a prisoner who stabbed a Wayne County (Mich.) Sheriff's deputy in a brazen escape Monday from the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice.

By 10 p.m. Monday, 25-year-old Abraham Pearson was back in custody and scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday on more than 10 additional charges including assault with intent to murder, unlawful imprisonment, and impersonating a peace officer to commit a crime, reports the Detroit News.

Pearson's escape came Monday morning, as Deputy Harrison Tolliver was placing him in a holding cell. Pearson repeatedly stabbed the deputy with a plastic comb shaved into a shank.

Pearson took the deputy's uniform and carjacked a woman's gray Plymouth Voyager minivan at 8:20 a.m. He later abandoned that vehicle.

Federal, state, and local law enforcement launched a sweeping manhunt for Pearson, who was arrested with the help of a tipster who called to report a man matching his description flagging down cars near Interstate 94 and Mt. Elliott.

The wounded deputy was released from the hospital on Monday and is expected to fully recover.

I'm, glad the officer will be ok and that the POS is caught and I think the good citizen should get a commendation for helping the police catch this POS.
