Planting Flowers: Ohio Man Flees Police By Jumping Fence Into Prison

Ricky Flowers, 20, discovered the meaning of the adage of jumping from the frying pan into the fire. The Ohio man took police on a high-speed chase and then jumped over a wall . . . only to find himself in a prison.

He could not stay, however. It was a women’s prison.

Flowers was booked on charges of charged with fleeing and eluding, reckless operation of a motor vehicle and obstructing justice. Notably, he was not charged with unlawful entrance into a correctional facility.

  1. Maybe Clarence has some unopened video tapes and Anita Hill can give lessons….

  2. He looks like a charming young man by looking at his MUGSHOT.

    With a name like Flowers the women in the prison must be disappointed.

  3. This reminds me of what the Obama and Bush II DOJ theory of the case has done to FISA wiretap litigation.

    They jumped from the pan into the fire by being too cocky and not realizing where they were taking themselves.

    If you read the case closely, you find that there is a private right of action for anyone who was or is the victim of any FISA governed wiretaps. This provision is in the statute itself.

    If you can use public domain evidence to establish a prima facia case that you were wiretapped, as plaintiffs did, it switches the burden of proof to the government to show that they had a FISA court warrant before doing the wiretap.

    Holder jumped into the fire when he refused to produce evidence of having a warrant, thus the court granted summary judgment to the plaintiffs.

    All that remains is the inquiry into amount of damages and attorney fees.
