Inmate Escapes, Returns

Paris, TN – An inmate faces additional charges after escaping from the Henry County, Tennessee jail. During his work detail, Eugene Spence briefly left the compound and returned a short time later. He has been removed from work detail and is now charged with escape. Spence was arrested in February 2005 for vehicular homicide after driving drunk and hitting and killing a Cottage Grove man with his truck. A release from the Sherriff's department says work detail guidelines have been changed to prevent future escape opportunities.
