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.
