RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota inmate who walked away from a work assignment last month is back in custody.

State corrections officials say Paul Steiner was apprehended in Dickinson, North Dakota, on Tuesday.

Authorities say Steiner left his community service job in Rapid City on May 20 without approval.

The 62-year-old was sentenced in Meade County in March to serve five years for sixth-offense drunken driving. He had been housed at the Rapid City Community Work Center.
