This polar vortex is truly the ultimate justice in the land!

An escaped prisoner from a minimum security facility in Lexington, Kentucky decided that even a prison cell was preferable to his frosty freedom!

Robert Vick may have escaped jail time on Sunday, but by Monday he walked into a motel, and asked the clerk to call the police, saying that he wanted to turn himself in and escape the cold, which was in the low single digits.

With wind chill, the temperature was 20 below zero!

Usually inmates on the run surrender because they can't take the heat, not because they need to take the heat.

Robert was checked out by paramedics and treated for hypothermia by the Lexington Fire Department, as he was in prison-issued khaki pants, a shirt, and a jacket at the time of his not-so-great escape!

Robert had been serving a six-year sentence for burglary and criminal possession of a forged instrument, and has since returned to a much warmer Blackburn Correctional Complex.

Now we bet he's hoping to receive a sentence of 65 to 100 degrees for life!

    My friends are telling me it is a bitterly cold winter, colder than normal, in the midwest and parts of the East coast.

    You know it's going to be a bad day when you voluntarily check yourself back in, AND with frostbite.
