Crime tip: Bullet proof glass is also shoulder proof

Rather than get hauled back to jail, a Zion (Illinois) man tried to jump out of a bulletproof window to escape authorities.

Travis Copeland, 19, bolted out of a Lake County felony courtroom Wednesday, ran down the courthouse skyway that crosses Washington Street and tried to shoulder-slam his way through a second-floor window. A security camera captured the attempted escape and shows Copeland bounce against the glass in his failed getaway.About half a dozen (actually9) Lake County sheriffs deputies surrounded him with weapons drawn and brought him back to jail.
