Escaped Inmate Stuck in Frigid Cold Turns Himself in, Asks Cops to Take Him Back to Prison

How cold is it in Kentucky? Cold enough to make you go turn yourself back into prison.

Robert Vick found a way to escape from a minimal security prison in Lexington, Kentucky. He had gotten away but while he was trying to get away the temperatures in Kentucky were in the single digits. So Robert walked into a motel and told the clerk to call the police to turn himself in.

“This was definitely of his own volition,”Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said. “It’s cold out there, too cold to run around. I can understand why the suspect would turn himself in.” Vick would have been dressed in prison-issued khaki pants, a shirt and a jacket when he escaped, Department of Corrections spokeswoman Lisa Lamb said. Wind chill readings were 20 below zero Monday in Lexington.

I guess warmth out weighs freedom in this scenario.
