DALLAS (AP) -- An inmate who fled from a Dallas hospital while being treated for possible seizures was caught Tuesday in Oklahoma.

The Dallas County Sheriff's Department says an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper captured 32-year-old Jason Shane Davis.

Davis is being held in the Okfuskee County jail in Okemah, Oklahoma.

Security video at Parkland Memorial Hospital shows Davis on Monday apparently threatening a woman to get out of his leg irons.

Authorities say Davis -- who allegedly had a sharp object -- overpowered a female guard and fled from the hospital.

He'd been jailed on charges of robbery and impersonating a public servant.
