Inmate accidentally set free

SHREWSBURY

Darrel A. Givens, a Worcester man who was arrested on Labor Day for disturbing the peace, was accidentally set free by police the next day.

Givens was reportedly mistaken for another inmate who was set to be released on bail. When officers realized their mistake while Givens was still in the lobby, he fled the building.

Shrewsbury police could not find him, and as of Tuesday morning he had still evaded his captors.
