    Prison Break - New Zealand Style

    YouTube - prisoners' escape foiled by folly


    Hmm, embed not working or is it on my end?



    New Zealand inmate stroll stopped by pole

    By RAY LILLEY 9 hours ago

    WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) It was less than a Great Escape. Two New Zealand prisoners who were handcuffed together as they fled a courthouse foiled their own getaway when they ran to opposite sides of a light pole, slammed into each other and fell to the ground. 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 footage shows the two men trying to make a break for it but apparently forgetting they were joined at the wrist.

    Hastings police Senior Sgt. Dave Greig said one inmate, Regan Reti, 20, had just been sent to prison for more than two years after being convicted of assault.

    The other inmate, Tiranara White, 21, was in custody for allegedly stealing a car and violating parole.

    "As they were being led from the Hastings police cells ... they made a bolt for freedom," Greig told The Associated Press on Thursday.

    "They fell over and they were sprayed with pepper spray. But they got up and ran out of the court onto the street, across the road to a car park," he said. "That's where they met the pole it was all over, rover."
