A law enforcement agency in Georgia is giving a bit of a wink and a smile to a local family who blared the “COPS” theme song after an escaped inmate was recaptured following a manhunt.
Bacon County Sheriff’s Office was on the hunt for inmate Jeremy Smith who broke free from his prisoner transport and did a “tuck and roll” from the moving vehicle.
At the time, he was being transported to another facility.
The incident, which took place on Friday night, set off a manhunt after Smith ran into a wooded area.
With help from the Alma Police Department and Ware State Prison K9 team, Smith was contained to a certain area and captured.
According to the BCSO, Smith was unable to get very far due to his restraints.
Smith has since been returned to the Bacon County Jail and was charged with Escape and Destruction of Government Property.
In a Facebook post, the agency thanked “the neighbors who played “Bad Boys” [the COPS theme song] as we brought Inmate Smith out of the woods.”
