RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - A prisoner is back in custody in Racine, after being on the lam for about 11 hours.  

Police said 36-year-old Jesus Arroyo was handcuffed to a belly chain, when he managed to run from a state corrections' agent around 1 p.m. Monday.  

The agent was escorting him to the Racine County Jail's entrance. Around midnight, police said they were tipped off about a suspicious person elsewhere in the city.  

The subject fled when officers got there, but he was captured a short time later. He was jailed for violating a previous probation.  

Police said he has previous convictions for burglary, reckless injury, possessing marijuana with the intent to deliver it, and escape.
