Why even try?!? Jeffrey Hope was being held in a holding cell at the Hamilton County Courthouse in Ohio attempted a daring escape on Monday. Just before he was set to appear before a judge, he made a break for it. In a surveillance video, he can be seen sprinting while still in his striped prison uniform… in front of a group of seven cops. They all jumped up after seeing him run past them, chasing him down the hallway. He was reportedly caught and put back in custody.
