Cops Catch an Escaped Inmate by Following His Trail of Beer Cans

Can you believe that a guy who would break out of prison WOULDN'T have a deep respect for littering laws?

A 39-year-old guy named Travis Pratt broke out of jail in Wise, Virginia on Saturday. Then he stole a truck and got himself some beer.

Apparently he was just pounding the beers and throwing his empties into the truck bed . . . and that turned out to be his critical mistake.

Because the cans were flying out onto the road . . . and the cops were able to follow the trail of beer cans RIGHT to where Travis was hiding.

He's facing charges for destruction of property, felony escaping, and resisting arrest . . . and he'll probably also be charged for stealing the truck.
