Clinton Swearingen escaped on May 4th and was seen in Mill City a couple days later, but never arrested.
Law enforcement arrested him Friday evening after he was seen sitting near the Pioneer Courthouse in Portland with a backpack and other gear.
Officers thought he looked suspicious and asked for I.D. and he took off.
They eventually caught him and took him into custody where they discovered he was an prison escapee.
Swearingen is charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
He was originally serving time for theft and burglary charges.
