It all came crashing down when the inmate fell through the ceiling into the jail’s booking area.
An Indiana inmate’s attempted escape from a county jail was foiled by the pesky collapse of a ceiling underneath him as he tried to crawl away from officers.
Blaze Ayers, who has been an inmate at Jackson County Jail in Brownstown since Christmas Eve, tried to make a break for it on Monday as officers were escorting him and other prisoners back to their holding cells from an indoor recreation area, according to a press release posted Tuesday by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.
Video of the incident shows several officers in the booking area with their stun guns pointed at the ceiling. At one point in the footage, Ayers’ torso breaks through a ceiling tile before several more tiles fall causing him to crash a short distance to the floor.
The sheriff’s office said officers were forced to use their stun guns on Ayers after he fell because he still refused to listen to their commands.
