The Toilet Escape
On February 19, 2010, Michael Rigby (pictured), the leader of the Bloods criminal gang in Kissimee, Fla., pried the toilet and sink away from his cell in the Osceola County Jail, where he was awaiting trial for attempted murder and a host of related charges, wormed his way through the adjoining crawl space out of the building, scaled two barbed wire fences and escaped. After stopping at his grandmother's house, several miles away, where he obtained clothing, money and a car, Rigby was next spotted in North Carolina. His car was later recovered in Elizabeth, N.J., but Rigby remained at large until April 28, 2010, when he was apprehended in Patterson, N.J.
