A Clinton County man who spent five days on the lam last week after escaping from the custody of the Clinton County Jail, is back behind bars and faces new and additional charges.

Bobby W. Pillar, 33, of Albany, surrendered himself to Kentucky State Trooper Jason Warinner on Saturday, December 7, at 9:25 p.m., according to Kentucky State Trooper Billy Gregory, the Public Affairs Officer for Post 15 in Columbia.

Pillar surrendered himself at his residence on Ky. 1590, and was arrested by Warinner at that time.
