Mark this up as what was he thinking? Yesterday a guy decided he needed to try and break into the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center in Lake Charles.

The subject's name is Kenneth D. Hunt, 39 of Lake Charles. He had been released from the correctional center at approximately 3:00 pm yesterday after being booked into the correctional center on November 1 for theft; criminal damage to property; and criminal trespassing.

Around 8:00 pm last night, Hunt returned back to the correctional center and tried to break back into the jail and it was caught on video. According to the Calcasieu Parish Sherriff's Office,

 Earlier this evening, shortly after 8:00 p.m., Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the Calcasieu Correctional Center in reference to a disturbance.

 During the initial investigation, it was discovered Kenneth D. Hunt, 39, Lake Charles, busted the glass on the front door located at the main entrance of the CCC, by throwing a rock at the glass.  Hunt proceeded to push out the broken glass with his hands.

When he was arrested once again, he stated to deputies that he broke the glass because he wanted a place to sleep and a meal.

Calcasieu parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso made a statement about the incident,

“This individual had not even been released from the Calcasieu Correctional Center for 24 hours before he decided to return and break the glass on the front doors,” stated Sheriff Tony Mancuso.  “He stated to deputies he wanted a place to sleep and a meal; we quickly made those arrangements for him.  I guess we can now say we literally have people beating down the door to stay with us.”

How funny is that? This is why we love Sheriff Mancuso. Check out the video below as the subject tries to break back into the jail.
