After escaping from jail final 12 months and hiding for months, a person within the UK was arrested after leaving hiding to purchase a replica of Call of Duty, solely to get caught by the police within the course of.

According to the West Midlands Police, 36-year-old Clint Butler, an escaped prisoner in Birmingham, ventured out on January 13 to purchase a replica of Call Of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War. Butler had been hiding from police, as again in November of last year he had slipped out of HMP Spring Hill jail, positioned in Buckinghamshire, the place he was serving a 17-year prolonged sentence for crimes together with theft and firearms offenses.

When native police noticed Butler and his pal, the pair modified course to keep away from the cops. This caught the eye of the police, who requested Butler what he was doing out and about through the pandemic-induced lockdown. He replied, “I’ve come to get the brand new Call of Duty as a result of I can’t sit round in lockdown,” the West Midlands Police report.

The officers then asked for some details, at which level Butler attacked one of many officers. After being arrested it was revealed that Butler had given police a faux identify. He acquired a 13-month sentence for his unique jailbreak, and an extra six months for the altercation with police.

Superintendent Nick Rowe of the West Midlands Police appeared confused why Butler even got here out to buy the sport, saying, “Quite why he decided to risk being returned to prison by making the idiotic decision to come into town during lockdown with a friend to buy a video game will remain a bit of a mystery.”
