When people break out of a prison, they usually do it because they want their freedom back. However, a 51 year old inmate escaped from his cell because he was more concerned about his teeth rather than his freedom.
The 51 year old had allegedly been complaining about a toothache to prison officials for four whole days. And when the authorities didn’t respond to his complaint, he decided it was high time to take measures into his own hands. The man busted out of the prison, went to the dentist’s office, received a treatment for his tooth and then turned himself back to the prison. As ridiculous as it may sound, his punishment was a new sentence – to remain behind bars for one more day.
According to reports, the man’s official sentence had been only one month in jail. But the funny part is that he was about to be released the day after his prison break. However, the man told the media that he just couldn’t stand the toothache anymore.
