Pennsylvania felon nabbed in VA

FREDERICKSBURG, VA (WWBT) - Fredericksburg Police nab an escaped felon from Pennsylvania.

Officers swarmed the Thomas Jefferson Motel, after an employee spotted 25-year-old Michael Hamilton at check-in.

It took about two hours for Hamilton to surrender.

It's believed he overdosed on heroin and, right now, Hamilton is in critical condition at a nearby hospital.

He escaped from a work-release program last week and is believed to have robbed a bank afterwards.
