Escaped Inmate Sent Directly Back To Jail

Compiled From Wire Services
 

A man who used a Monopoly piece to escape from custody is headed the same place as a player who rolls six while on Illinois Avenue.

Directly to jail.

Donald W. Bissell and two other prisoners escaped from the Faulkner County jail on Nov. 6 using a wheelbarrow piece from a Monopoly game to unscrew about 20 bolts on a vent cover.

Bissell, 24, was arrested Wednesday in Kentucky during a routine traffic stop, said Sheriff Bob Blankenship.

The three inmates, one of whom remains a fugitive, broke through 2 inches of concrete, climbed onto the roof, and used a rope fashioned from a cloth mattress cover to scale down the three-story building.

Bissell is charged in Arkansas with being an accomplice to rape.
