Prisoner in trouble for beer break

KISSIMMEE, Fla., Oct. 29 (UPI) -- A Florida prisoner who took time off from his work release to drink beer with friends is being charged with escape.

Department of Corrections spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said Jimmy Davis, 29, will "definitely be pulled in from the work camp" in addition to facing an escape charge after he left his job at Stelly's Lawn Care in Kissimmee Saturday and did not return to the work release center by dark and called guards after 11 p.m. to say he was returning to the dormitory, the Orlando Sentinel reported Friday.

Davis, who is serving a five-year sentence for armed robbery, told guards he had been out drinking beers with friends.

"He does stand to lose 274 days of gain time plus the state attorney's office could add several years for escape," Plessinger said.

Davis was booked into the Osceola County Jail without bail. He could face up to five years for escape.
