Florida men flee from police ... in a canoe




Looks like the infamous Florida man is at it again.  This time he brought along a friend. The two thought they'd be clever and try to get away from the cops. They should have chosen a better mode of transportation, though. Garrett Eure, 23, of Gainesville, and Jessie Bryant, also 23, of Fort Pierce, sent the police on a 9-mile chase down a river. In a canoe. The canoe was no match for the Madison County Sheriff's office motorboat and the wanted men were eventually caught after a 5-hour chase.

What's next in fugitive escape technology? Pogo sticks? Pine box derby cars?
