Jailbreak Via Horseback

Published: July 20, 2016 01:06 pm EDT

It is well documented that horses – sometimes retired racehorses – are very effective in helping special-needs individuals, those who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, and prison inmates. It has been reported that a prison inmate recently took some liberties with a steed and enjoyed a short time on ‘the outside’ because of it.

According to an article by the Muskogee Phoenix, a prisoner was recaptured last week after he had broken out of jail on horseback roughly two weeks earlier.

The piece does not offer many details regarding the situation, but it does state that 39-year-old Cody O’Dell Humphers broke out of the Howard McLeod Correctional Center in Atoka, Oklahoma on horseback on June 28.

The article states that the horse was found soon after the escape and was returned to the correctional centre.

Humphers was in the midst of serving a 20-year sentence for knowingly concealing stolen property.
