In the Isle of Wight, UK, a man dressed as the Peanuts character Snoopy and an accomplice have been detained after they attempted to break into a prison to free a relative.
Officials were concerned as the pair appeared to have a gun as they attempted to break down a prison door and threw concrete at prison officials´ cars. The gun turned out to be a water pistol, and their relative turned out to be at a different prison.
The two men are being held under the Mental Health Act. A prison source said "It’s not every day you see a giant cartoon dog go on the rampage," adding: "This has got to rank as one of the worst attempted jail breaks ever."
