Here’s a tip for budding fugitives: avoid prisons. Ricky Flowers needs a reminder, considering that he led police on a 90mph chase across several Ohio towns and two interstates early Monday before hitting a dead end in front of a women’s prison facility. Flowers and the three other men with him then got out and tried to run. Police grabbed three of them, but Flowers managed to scale a fence—landing him right in the prison yard.

“He had nowhere to go. It was a little easier to get in than get out, apparently,” a police captain tells Fox 8 Cleveland. “They’re not all this easy to catch.” Flowers, 20, started the chase after being busted driving with a suspended license; now he and the men with him are facing quite a few more charges, including fleeing and eluding and obstructing justice.
