Jailbird Escapee Headbutts Miami-Dade Cop, Thinks He's an Action Hero
via miami dade police
Most of the time, when you hear about some lunatic headbutting a cop, crack cocaine is involved. It takes some serious rock to make a guy think he is enough of a superhero to pull a Jean-Claude Van Damme on an armed police officer. But not Anrry Morales-Leiva, delusional action hero/prisoner extraordinaire. The 30-year-old man to the right was more into smoking weed and stealing cars, according to his rap sheet.
At 4:30 this morning -- while his hands were cuffed behind his back -- Morales-Leiva used his scull to bash in a cop's face, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department. Then ran through the lawns of neighbors until officers used dogs and helicopters to track him down. Which sounds a lot like The Fugitive. Without the handsomeness.
Cops were transporting the now-swollen-faced prisoner to the Miami Dade County Pre-Trail detention center in a police pick-up truck when he escaped. They nabbed him 3 1/2 hours later near 211 NW 25 Avenue.
