A family member turned in a Hobbs teen who busted out of jail earlier this week.

19-year-old Matthew Lopez broke out of his cell by removing a portion of the metal partition and climbed out a window.

Lopez was in the emergency room and was being belligerent and rude to staff and his aunt had enough.

We're told she walked out of the emergency room, called Hobbs Police and told them to come pick him up.

Lopez is back behind bars.
