KISSIMMEE, Fla. - A gang leader who escaped from the Osceola County Jail and was caught in New Jersey is back in central Florida.
Authorities say Michael Rigby arrived at the sheriff's office Friday morning. He met with detectives, but wouldn't answer any questions about his escape. He's being held in jail without bond.
The U.S. Marshals Service was tracking Rigby around the country since he escaped on Feb. 19. He was wanted on five counts of attempted murder and escape charges. He was arrested months later by the Paterson Police Department in New Jersey.
Authorities say Rigby used a homemade saw to tunnel behind a sink and a toilet at the Osceola County Jail. Thirty corrections officers from the jail were disciplined after the escape. Nearly a dozen have been fired.
