An escaped prisoner in Florida, USA, drove into the ocean to get away from police. He was captured anyway.
The prisoner got away while he was working away from the jail. He was in jail for disorderly conduct (bad behavior, causing trouble).
Later, someone saw him driving a truck. Police and U.S. Marshals chased him, sometimes going up to 90 miles per hour. Finally, the man drove into Escambia Bay. He got out of the truck and tried to walk in the water. Police borrowed a small boat and went after him.
"He was arrested without further incident," U.S. Marshals say.
Today, the day after U.S. Thanksgiving Day, has a slang name: Black Friday.
Why "black"? No one is sure. What we know is that many Americans begin their Christmas shopping on this day. "Black" may mean "unpleasant" -- because the stores and malls are so crowded. But it may also stand for "in the black" -- making a profit -- because the stores make a lot of money on this day. (The opposite is "in the red", meaning losing money.)

Oloruntade Olumuyiwa was part of a group that phoned elderly people. They were told they had won a lottery, but to get their prizes they had to send money. Of course, the lottery was fake. Victims sent money, but no one ever got a prize.
Some of the victims lived in the U.S. Olumuyiwa was arrested in Manchester, England, earlier this year. He was sent to the U.S. for trial.
