Last Thursday was an exciting day for Mattu Chuol. Things must have been getting pretty boring hanging out at the Anoka Metro Regional Treatment Center.

Nothing can break up the monotony like a little breakout That's exactly what Mattu did. He busted out of the joint and it that wasn't enough fun for one day, he then stole a cop car. Never a good idea.

When cops arrived to apprehend Mattu, they spotted him walking down the sidewalk. When one officer got out of her car to pursue Mattu, he jumped in her police car and took off.

He must have had a solid moment of clarity a few blocks later. Mattu brought the police car to a complete stop in the middle of the street and surrendered to police.

I guess, no matter where you are, it's just good to get away, once in awhile.
