Inmate defeats twelve guards on way to freedom using prison-made nunchucks

An inmate escaped from St. Louis city jail on Friday after fighting off no less than 12 correctional officers with a pair of nunchucks that he had pieced together from a sheet and parts of a chair.

After bashing his way through the security personnel, 31-year-old Lorenzo Pollard is said to have climbed to another level of the jail and bashed his way through two layers of glass blocks before scaling two sharp fences – one of which was topped with barbed wire, the other with razor wire.

In spite of his formidable skills, Pollard’s hard-earned taste of freedom was brief: he was returned to the jail on Sunday night.
