FRANKLIN COUNTY, AL - There have been quite a few headlines lately about people trying to break out of jail: El Chapo reportedly spent $50 million to make his getaway from a Mexican prison, while up in New York, David Sweat and Richard Matt convinced a guard to help them bust out. But in Franklin County, Ala., a woman staged a kind of reverse jailbreak.

Talisha McCann, 42, had just been released on probation, but two weeks later, surveillance video caught her trying to use bolt cutters to slice through a fence at the county jail. Investigators think she was trying to get drugs to other inmates. Instead, she just landed herself back inside with them.

That's why McCann is our Dumbass of the Day.
