An escaped prison inmate was captured Monday after trying to run over an Arkansas State Police investigator with a van in the parking lot of a southwest Little Rock McDonald's restaurant, prompting the injured officer to fire several shots at the fleeing convict, police said.

Mark Grover, 42, was apprehended unharmed minutes later in the parking lot of the Electric Cowboy, a nightclub at 9515 Interstate 30, a short distance from the McDonald's at 8820 Base Line Road where the confrontation took place about 2:15 p.m.

Grover, a residential burglar serving a 10-year sentence, had walked away from work at a southwest Little Rock boating supply wholesaler on Friday. He was the fifth work-release inmate to escape since July.
