TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Police in Tulsa say an escaped Oklahoma state prison inmate has been recaptured following a short chase.

Police told reporters that 24-ytear-old Christopher Rowe was arrested Wednesday night in north Tulsa after an officer spotted him driving a sport utility vehicle and that he led police on a short chase before being stopped and arrested.

Rowe was serving seven year sentences for Tulsa County convictions that include possession of explosives by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of methamphetamine. Authorities say he walked away from the minimum security John H., Lilley Correctional Center in Boley on Dec. 31.
