TV Station Reports Prison Break, Shows Picture of John Wayne

(Image: WDKY Fox 56)

John Wayne, also known as Michael Fleet, escaped from a prison in Kentucky last week. Or that's the impression you would get by this graphic shown by WDKY Fox 56, a television station in Lexington, Kentucky. It displayed mugshots of the two escaped prisoners. One of them showed the late actor John Wayne as Rooster Cogburn, a character that he played in two western films: True Grit and Rooster Cogburn.

The news broadcasters later explained that the graphic shows the image of John Wayne as a default setting. They neglected to upload a photo of escaped prisoner Michael Fleet before displaying it on live TV.
