Man too fat for slammer

A Canadian man has an interesting get out of jail card.

Michel Lapointe - a 450-pound drug gang member known as Big Mike - was apparently released before the end of his five year sentence because he was too big for the cell, according to a Reuters story.

(Well, the bed and chair to be exact.)

He didn't get off the hook that easily - it appears she's been in jail since 2006.

The letter discussing his release said: "You have been detained for more than 25 months and your prison conditions are difficult because of your health."
