Two New Zealand prisoners are back in custody right now after trying to make a run for freedom only to be stopped by a light pole. You see, the two prisoners were handcuffed together when they decided that making a run for it would be logical. So they did and were immediately pepper-sprayed but not captured — yet.

The two managed to get out into the street — albeit a bit dazed and confused from the pepper-spray — and were shortly stopped by their own stupidity. Forgetting that they were still handcuffed, the two separately ran around opposite sides of a light pole and were thrust into each other. The surveillance video is definitely something to laugh over.
