The Floridiot Files

Jailbreak, Floridiot Style

Sylvester Jiles has to be taken to the hospital Tuesday for serious injures and severe blood loss suffered during an attempt to get over fences at the Brevard County Jail. Jiles made it through one barbed wire fence before attempting to scale a larger fence and falling off through three levels of razor wire.

The twist? He was trying to break IN!

Jiles had only been released from the Jail the previous Friday on probation, but claimed he had received death threats and wanted protective custody. Outside the jail he talked to deputies about his desire to be taken into custody, and while waiting for other deputies to arrive to investigate, he is reported to have been acting strangely and erratically. Apparently he became impatient and sprinted off to the fence line, where he began his failed reverse jailbreak attempt.

Surely there are easier and safer ways for a recent parolee to get back in jail?
