Prisoner turns up in judge's trunk
MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. -- A Michigan judge said he's learned a lesson about locking his car after a 16-year-old prisoner who escaped from a courthouse cell was found hiding in the vehicle's trunk.
The Macomb Daily reports the teen had vanished Friday after appearing in juvenile court in Mount Clemens.
Sheriff's deputies searched for about an hour until a security officer became suspicious when he saw a picture on the ground outside the judge's car.
A deputy checked and found the boy in the trunk.
Macomb County Circuit Judge Peter Maceroni says the teen likely used a button inside the unlocked car to open the trunk.
The judge says that from now on he will lock the car when he's at the courthouse.
