Shawshank Redemption Gone Wrong: Convict Successfully Escapes Prison, Asks Cop For a Lift

Lewis complained his handcuffs were too tight. As the officers were loosening his cuffs, he got free and eloped.

A prisoner's escape plan came to a rather comic end after he asked a cop for a lift.

Well, karma is a... you know.

According to reports, Allen Lewis was being transported from Greenup County Detention Center in Kentucky when he managed to escape.

Lewis complained his handcuffs were too tight. As the officers were loosening his cuffs, he got free and eloped.

However, destiny had something else in store for him.

After escaping, Lewis made it to a nearby highway and tried lift from the passing cars. After several failed attempts one car did stop. But guess what... The man turned out to be a police officer.

“It was a campus police officer. He (Lewis) thought he was getting a ride, and he did,” said Greenup County Jailer Mike Worthington.

Worthington said Lewis is now back in jail and is likely to face additional charges for escaping prison.
