A Manlius, N.Y., police officer was transporting a burglary suspect to jail when the handcuffed man suddenly kicked out a window of the moving patrol car, jumped out headfirst, and ran. Brian D. Valentino, 33, had just been arraigned in court and apparently didn’t want to go to jail, investigators say. Once free, Valentino ducked through a nearby door into a building to hide.

Valentino was returned to court to face escape charges. (Syracuse Post-Standard) ...Sometimes when it arraigns, it pours.
