DARLINGTON COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A 23-year-old man who escaped from the Darlington County Courthouse in May was arrested in Jacksonville, North Carolina, according to officials.

Shanard King was sentenced to nine years for a crime on Monday, May 16 when he managed to escape, according to Darlington County Sheriff Wayne Byrd.

“He was here for trial and trial was over, he was being sentenced by a judge and when the judge announced his sentence, it's our understanding he moved like he was speaking to a family member or something and ran to the back of the courtroom and was able to escape out the stairwell and hallway," Byrd said.

King was arrested in Jacksonville on unrelated charges, and the Darlington County Sheriff’s Office is making arrangements to return him to South Carolina, according to a Facebook post.
