Escaped convict lands himself back in prison after coming out of hiding to buy a video game

Escaped convict Clint Butler assaulted two police officers and had to be restrained on the ground after he was stopped in Birmingham city centre on 13 January.

Bodycam footage shows him kicking one officer in the groin and punching another in the face before being held down by the officers and security guards who came to help.

He escaped HMP Spring Hill open prison last year while serving a 17-year extended sentence for crimes including robbery and firearms offences.

Since fleeing the prison at around midnight on 28 November, he has been classed as wanted by police.

When asked by the officers why he was in town during lockdown, Butler's friend replied: "I've come to get the new Call Of Duty because I can't sit around in lockdown."
