OUACHITA PARISH, La. (KNOE) - UPDATE: The suspect's mother, Amy Michelle Hubbard, has also been charged in connection with the case.

According to arrest records, the suspect called Hubbard after he escaped Green Oaks on Saturday. The call was allegedly made from the 5300 block of Jackson Street.

Authorities say she knew both suspects were legally detained at Green Oaks. She's charged with two counts of assisting with an escape.

The father of a 17-year-old Green Oaks escapee who sparked a manhunt in Ouachita Parish has been arrested in connection with the case.

According to documents filed with 4th Judicial Court in Ouachita Parish, Brian McClain has been charged for allegedly helping his son, Brandon Kaleb McClain, after an escape Saturday from the Green Oaks Juvenile Detention Center.

In addition to being an escapee, Brandon Kaleb McClain (who goes by just Kaleb) was also wanted on a felony warrant for burglary of a religious building.

According to court records, investigators located Kaleb in the area of 5400 Cypress Street in West Monroe on June 12. They attempted to apprehend Kaleb, but he was able to flee in his vehicle, documents indicate, sparking a chase.

During the chase, investigators say Kaleb exceeded speeds of 80 mph, failed to yield to oncoming traffic, and forced motorists off the road. The chase hit Vancil Road and Kendallwood. He's also accused of firing shots at deputies through his rear windshield before crashing in the Westlakes subdivision. He then ran on foot, escaping the pursuing officers.

After the crash, authorities were later able to determine that Brian McClain, who has an extensive criminal history, helped his son after the escape from Green Oaks, knowing that his son was an escapee.

Kaleb McClain was captured on Thursday afternoon after an extensive manhunt that lasted nearly 30 hours. He is charged with attempted second-degree murder, aggravated flight from an officer, simple escape, and simple burglary of a religious building.

For his alleged part, Brian McClain is charged with being an accessory after the fact.

Court documents also indicated that another person escaped from Green Oaks with Kaleb McClain and that person has also been caught.
