MARYSVILLE, CA - A Sutter County Jail inmate who escaped Wednesday night surrendered Friday.

Nickolas Pattee, 26, was spotted by a Marysville police officer at noon at the same time he was using a cellphone to turn himself in, said jail Capt. David Sampson. Pattee was still wearing jail garb, minus a shirt.

Sampson said Pattee said he was giving up because officers were everywhere he went, either ahead of him or just behind him.

Pattee was originally sentenced for driving a car without consent. He was serving his three-year sentence as a realignment inmate since May 22, 2012.

He escaped from the jail by going out through a fire door and climbing a 14-foot razor-wire fence. There was a gap in the razor wire over the fence gate and that's where Pattee climbed, according to Sampson.
