Work crew walkaway, a Stateline man, recaptured

A Stateline man, who walked away from a prison work crew in downtown Carson City was recaptured today in Woodland, Calif.

Michael David Lillie, 37, arrived at Stewart Conservation Camp on April 8, five days after District Judge Tom Gregory sentenced him to prison for up to 10 years for subsequent felony DUI.

Lillie was on parole for a previous felony instance of driving under the influence when he was arrested in Stateline on Dec. 21, 2015. He had been out of prison for nine months.

A preliminary breath test revealed he had a .171 blood alcohol content.

Lillie’s previous felony DUI occurred on Dec. 28, 2012, in Carson City. He was sentenced on April 1, 2013, and was still on parole when he was pulled over.

Upon recapture Lillie was booked into the Yolo County Jail charged with false representation to a police officer, a misdemeanor offense in California, and is also being held on a Director’s Retake Warrant from the Nevada Department of Corrections.

He could be facing 2-6 years for escape after walking away from the work crew.
