lmao: Escaped inmate rappelled down building using bedsheets


(CNN) -- Texas authorities on Sunday were searching for a convicted burglar who escaped from a medical facility by rappelling off the building using a string of bedsheets, officials said.

Joshua Duane Barnes, 21, was last seen at 8:15 p.m. Saturday on the seventh floor of a Texas Department of Criminal Justice medical facility in Galveston, Texas, said TDCJ spokesman Jason Clark.

Fifteen minutes later, Barnes was gone, Clark told CNN.

Security officers noticed there was a hole in the wall and a vent had been removed.

According to Clark, Barnes busted a hole through a wall in his room and then broke through a thick window.

He apparently tied bedsheets together, rappelled down the side of the building to a roof, and then jumped to the ground, Clark said.

Barnes was serving 35 years in prison for several felony convictions, including seven burglary charges, two escape charges and an aggravated assault charge in the Texas Panhandle area, according to a TDCJ press release.

The inmate was being housed at a prison in Midway, Texas. He was transported to the medical facility in Galveston last week after being hurt in an altercation, TDCJ said.

The department of criminal justice has tracking dogs and dozens of officers searching the area, Clark said. Local police officers also joined the search.

''You probably thought this was a bright idea, who hit the light switch? Hype shift, this is where it looks like the fight's fixed, tight fist, beat you with the hand that I write with, punchlines that remind Rodney King of the night sticks...''

awwhhh hunting puppehs.

Kids used to do this in rehab...because they were so badass. I didn't really get it though, we were in the middle of Pennsylvania, if they left, the only thing they could probably get was scrapple and or those heating lamps the Amish make....you know them Amish know electric space heaters.

Look at the great photoshop job the company did though!

oh lord. i live right near the ny state psychiatric institution, and i guess they can't keep track of everybody...in short, there are usually a few people of questionable stability roaming my building. yesterday afternoon this three hundred pound guy in a hospital gown and no shoes decided to camp out in front of my door for a few hours and mumble weird threats directly into the peephole. i considered going the bed-sheet route out the window, but he kindly left...
