Federal fugitive among 4 Lower Brule jail escapees

LOWER BRULE (AP) -- The U.S. Marshal's Service says one of the four inmates who escaped from a jail in Lower Brule is wanted on a federal charge of violating parole.

Authorities say 21-year-old Troy Fairbanks was being held by the Lower Brule Tribe on allegations of domestic assault. He's wanted by the Marshal's Service for violating terms of his supervised release on a previous burglary conviction.

Fairbanks and three others broke out of the jail Tuesday night. One of the inmates has since been captured by Bureau of Indian Affairs officers.
