The skinny: Escapee turns himself in after arctic blast

Too cold for freedom

Escapee turns himself in after arctic blast

Just how cold is it in Kentucky? Apparently cold enough for an escaped prisoner to decide to turn himself in. Authorities said the inmate escaped from a minimum security facility in Lexington on Sunday. As temperatures dropped into the low single digits Monday, officials say, the man walked into a motel and asked the clerk to call police. Robert Vick, 42, of Hartford told the clerk he wanted to turn himself in and escape the arctic air, Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said. Wind chill readings were 20 below zero Monday in Lexington.

Police: Knife pulled in PB&J dispute

Police say an Iowa man was arrested after he pulled a knife on his brother during a fight over peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. The Des Moines Register reports that Jerome Davis was arrested on Friday after the confrontation with his brother in their Des Moines home. Both men are in their 50s. Davis' accuser told police he was angry because he believed his brother was eating too many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Davis allegedly made three sandwiches and ate them in their living room, and made another less than an hour later. A police report says the brothers began to argue about laziness and overeating. Davis allegedly pulled out a folding knife and held it to his brother's face. Davis was charged with domestic abuse with a weapon.
