ROGERSVILLE, Tenn.-- The party's over for four jail inmates accused of walking away from an unlocked cellblock, buying more than two cases of beer and returning to share it with other prisoners.

Ridgy Dean Coleman, Jimmy Joe Stapleton, David Wayne Blizzard and David Allen Hopkins were charged Monday with escape and introduction of intoxicants into a penal institution.

The escape happened Thursday night after cellblock doors at the Hawkins County Jail were accidentally left unlocked and a faulty control panel failed to alert jailers, Sheriff Warren Rimer said.

Two of the inmates then walked out through a fire exit, left the door propped open with a small Bible and made a hole in the exercise yard fence. They walked to a nearby market, bought some beer and returned back to the jail.When the booze ran out, the other two inmates made another beer run to a different store.

Authorities believe the inmates bought three 12 packs and an 18 pack of beer.
"I guess they thought if they come back they would'nt be charged with escape." Rimer said, "but they were wrong".

The store visits didn't raise alarm because the inmates were wearing street clothes borrowed from other prisoners. The jail doesn't have enough of the orang jumpsuits for all inmates.

"It's an unfortunate incident, and the inmates involved are going to be punished," Rimer said, "It's want's really anybody's fault". "At least they came back", he said.
