Inmate Refuses to Leave Jail, Gets Arrested Again
Most people locked up in jail are hoping to leave, but one Arizona man liked being behind bars so much that he tried his hardest to get back in - and succeeded.
David Spurlock, 29, was released from Maricopa County Jail on Wednesday for drug charges but he refused to leave the facility.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio told ABC15.com that officers forcibly escorted Spurlock away from the lock-up.
But when he was finally out of the jail, police say he ran to a marked semi-truck that belonged to the county sheriff and unsuccessfully tried to start it up, according to the Associated Press.
Sheriff’s officials say Spurlock told them he planned to sell the stolen semi, which was filled with meals for the jail.
Arpaio said: "Maybe he liked the food so much, he thought he would take a truck load of my vegetarian meals with him.”
Spurlock is now back in jail on a burglary charge and is being held without bond.
