BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) – A fugitive who escaped from a hospital in Anniston has been located and arrested, says the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office.

David Andrew Hunt was captured in an apartment in Birmingham by U.S. Marshalls. Marshalls had determined Hunt to be staying there and were able to enter and arrest him without any injuries. Hunt was taken to the Calhoun County Jail.

Hunt escaped from Anniston Police on the 19th of this month when he was taken to RMC Anniston for treatment for injuries sustained in a car wreck. A manhunt for Hunt began and he was able to elude law enforcement for over a week.

The Calhoun County Sheriff's Office says citizen information was invaluable in the investigation into Hunt's whereabouts.
