Inmate Steals Police Truck

Dumb criminals will try anything in order to escape from justice:

An East Texas inmate made a brief getaway after jumping behind the wheel of the police pickup truck that was transporting him. Authorities say David Lee Sprague was in the backseat of a Van Zandt County vehicle today when the detective who was driving stepped out of the truck to talk with someone.

That’s all the time Sprague apparently needed to hop into the front seat and speed away. Authorities caught up with the vehicle a short time later and returned Sprague to custody. The Tyler Morning Telegraph reports that the truck was equipped with multiple weapons, including an assault rifle.
