Police have recaptured a wanted man after he appeared in a bizarre Facebook video.

Justin Taulbee escaped from police last week as he was being transported to the Breathitt County Courthouse in Kentucky.

He was in custody for robbery, probation violation, resisting arrest and escape charges, according to LEX18.

The video was uploaded on Monday and tipped off police to where he was at the Red River Gorge.
