Frank Singleton could be classified as ingenious, or an idiot, but likely the latter. Singleton was released from jail after serving time on a misdemeanor trespassing charge. Immediately after release, Singleton attempted to carjack a lady and take her 2006 Nissan 350Z from the jail parking lot. It didn't work out so well for Singleton, but not because he was in a sheriff's office parking lot.
It was because Singleton could not drive a manual transmission. Nevertheless, he was unsuccessful escaping, and was detained by sheriffs who overheard the commotion. When asked why he did it, Singleton simply said that he didn't want to walk. At least it made it easy on the sheriffs. His jail cell was likely still empty. [Sun-Sentinel via Neatorama]
