      TEAXARKANA, Ark. (AP) - Officials say they now believe an inmate who escaped from the Southwest Arkansas Community Correction Center in Texarkana borrowed a bicycle and rode it to Interstate 30.

      Twenty-year-old Derek Still was part of a group of inmates being escorted to a recreation area Saturday when he ran from the group and escaped.

      KLRT reports that police now believe Still was able to borrow a phone and bike.

      Still was convicted in Van Buren County of possession of drug paraphernalia.

      Inmates at the Southwest Arkansas Community Correction Center are classified as non-violent and are not registered sex offenders.
