This is a stupid criminal of epic proportions, with only six days left in jail, he decided that 272 days was enough and he couldn't wait for the other 6.

According to KOIN-TV, 30-year-old Matthew Medlin of Portland, Oregon was serving a 278-day prison sentence at the Columbia River Correctional Institute for burglary, sex abuse, and assault.

He was 272 days into his 278-day sentence on Wednesday, and apparently he just couldn't hold out those extra six days, so he hopped a fence and broke out.

The cops found him later that night eating at a Jack in the Box in north Portland.

He was arrested and will be facing new charges for escape.  If he had just stuck it out, his release date would've been Tuesday.

So add this one to the very top of the list of stupid criminals.
