A Not So Great Escape

(From MSNBC's Weird News)

Oops! Inmates' escape stopped by light pole
Two handcuffed men flee courthouse only to end up on the ground

WELLINGTON, New Zealand - Two prisoners in New Zealand are facing more charges, and major embarrassment over an escape attempt gone bad. The men were handcuffed together as they fled a courthouse, but apparently forgot that little fact as they ran to opposite sides of a light pole, with predictable results. The men slammed into each other and fell to the ground. End of escape. Jailers nabbed them as they struggled to their feet.

Their escapade on Wednesday was captured by a CCTV camera at Hastings District Court on New Zealand's North Island.The two were back in court today, facing fresh charges of escaping from custody.
