LOS ANGELES (AP) — An inmate who walked out of jail by flashing a phony identification card bearing a picture of actor Eddie Murphy has been recaptured, authorities said Sunday.

Kevin J. Pullum, 31, was spotted by police walking in downtown Los Angeles Sunday, the sheriff's department said.

Moments earlier, police had stopped another man resembling Pullum. The man was released, and the officers drove around the corner to continue their patrol. The officers then saw Pullum, whom they recognized from a bulletin, authorities said.

Pullum escaped July 6, hours after he was convicted of attempted murder.
