Inmate Escapes From Maximum Security Jail Through Kitchen Window, Seen at Carl's Jr. Across the Street

Inmate Escapes From Maximum Security Jail Through Kitchen Window, Seen at Carl's Jr. Across the Street

A manhunt is on for 39-year-old William Scott Woodin, who escaped from Theo Lacy Jail in Orange County, California on Wednesday evening through a small kitchen window while on kitchen detail.

How did Wooding, who's 6 feet tall and weighs 200 lbs, manage to fit through the tiny window, did he butter himself up first? Anyway, it looks like his first visit as a fugitive was to the Carl's Jr. directly across the street, where witnesses say they saw him shed his jumpsuit.

Woodin was arrested in October on suspicion of stealing a watch from Nordstrom, which violated his parole for theft and drug convictions. Mr. Nice Watch, who was sentenced to 314 days in a local jail because California state prisons are horribly overcrowded, is the first inmate to dip from the "maximum security" jail in 20 years.

Anytime a nonviolent offender becomes the first escapee in two decades, adjustments needs to be made.
