Inmate uses broom to chisel a hole in the wall during attempted escape

An Alachua County inmate attempted to escape his jail cell by using a broom to chisel a hole in the concrete wall.

The Alachua County Jail says that 33-year-old inmate Maurice Marsalis Terry chiseled a 4-inch hole in his concrete cell wall to attempt to escape. 

They went on to say that Terry failed to return the permitted broom to the broom closet earlier in the day. He reportedly hid it underneath his mattress until a later time, when he used to chisel out a hole.
