Teen Wearing SLIPKNOT Jumpsuit Causes Jail To Be Placed On Lockdown

Penne Usher of the Auburn Journal is reporting that a Californian teenager's SLIPKNOT jumpsuit created quit a stir and prompted the Placer County Jail to be placed on lockdown.

Dispatchers at the Placer County Sheriff's Department received a call Sunday afternoon reporting a man wearing an orange inmate jumpsuit and shackles getting into a car at the Taco Bell on Highway 49 and Luther Road in Auburn, officials said.

To ensure one of Placer County's inmates hadn't decided to leave jail early for a little trick or treating, officials slammed the doors shut.

"As a precaution they locked down the entire jail," said Lt. George Malim, spokesman for the Placer County Sheriff's Department. "When you hear something like that, you err on the side of caution."

Fear not, all the inmates were present and accounted for. Patrol officers confirmed the man in the costume was not an escapee.

Eddie Hail, 17, of Auburn, had no idea Monday that his costume had caused such a stir. When learning that the jail was placed on lockdown, Hail replied, "Oops."

"They actually thought I was a convict?" Hail asked.

His girlfriend bought him the jumpsuit so he could dress up as a member of the band SLIPKNOT. But, together they decided he looked better as a convict.

"I just decided to walk around in the costume," Hail said. "The police came out and asked if anyone saw a guy in an orange jumpsuit."

Taco Bell employees explained to deputies that the inmate was really the boyfriend of one of the employees.
