Ten inmates at a Missouri jail got a special treat when a guard took them outside to see a patriotic fireworks display on July 4. But the real fireworks started back inside when authorities realized one of the inmates had escaped.
Shannon County Jail Jason McClurg.
Jason McClurg, 32, broke free from Shannon County jail in Eminence, 120 miles southeast of St. Louis, when a deputy led the inmates outside for the show. Shannon County Sheriff Steven Blunkall tells TV station KY3 that it's not yet clear whether McClurg was in restraints or whether he had help during his escape.
Update: McClurg is back in custody, reports KY3. Officials found him in a camper trailer Sunday evening and arrested him without incident. End of update.More »
