Clovis police say 25-year-old Kaitlyn Arington was apprehended Tuesday at a home along with a man who was wanted on a felony warrant for possession with intent to traffic methamphetamine.

Arington overpowered a health-care worker and escaped Monday from the Curry County Adult Detention Center.

She had been at the jail since May on drug and failure-to-appear charges.

A SWAT team had to deploy tear gas into the home before Arington surrendered.

Clovis police say Arington was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries before being taken back to jail.
