Prisoner Escapes During Bathroom Break
A manhunt is underway in Laurel County tonight for 50-year-old Ricky Allen, who escaped from the courthouse by asking the judge for time to talk to his lawyer alone. Once they were in chambers, Allen then told his attorney that he needed to use the rest room - and he never came back.
Allen had been facing two dozen charges of theft and burglary in London, and was expected to plead guilty.
