Escaped prisoner turns himself in to get out of cold
The “polar vortex” apparently is putting a deep freeze on crime — at least in Kentucky.
The Associated Press reported Tuesday that temperatures dropped so much that an escaped prisoner from a minimum security facility in Lexington decided that he would rather be locked up then try to survive the cold.
Robert Vick of Hartford escaped from the prison on Sunday, only to walk into a motel on Monday and ask the clerk to call the police.
A Lexington police spokesman told AP that Vick said he turned himself in to get away from the bone-chilling cold, which dipped to 20 below zero in Lexington on Monday.
