— An inmate released by mistake is back behind bars.

Carlos McCoy was re-arrested at a traffic stop.

McCoy escaped from the Wake County Jail in December. He is accused of shooting another man four times last summer. Now, he faces more charges, including a new one: possession of cocaine with intent to sell.

McCoy is being held on more than $1 million bond.
