Escaped prisoner turns up in Mich. judge's trunk

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan judge says he's learned a
lesson about locking his car after a 16-year-old prisoner who
escaped from a courthouse cell was found hiding in the vehicle's
trunk.
The Macomb Daily reports the teen had vanished Friday after
appearing in juvenile court in Mount Clemens on a probation
violation.
Sheriff's deputies searched for about an hour until a security
officer became suspicious when he saw a picture that had fallen to
the ground outside judge's car.
A deputy checked the car and found the boy in the trunk.
Macomb County Circuit Judge Peter Maceroni says the teen likely
used a button inside the unlocked car to open the trunk.
The judge says that from now on he will lock the car when he's
at the courthouse.
