A fugitive from Fort Bliss has been caught. U.S. Marshals arrested Priv. Deandrez Robertson in Knoxville, Tennessee about 2 hours ago.
Robertson escaped from custody at Fort Bliss last Wednesday while on his way to meet with his attorney. An extensive search by Military Police turned up nothing.
Robertson is charged with attempted murder.
Fort Bliss officials are not releasing any details surrounding the case or how Robertson was able to simply walk off post.
He was orignally scheduled to begin his court-martial in 3 days, but that date has now been changed.
