Man accused of having sex with horse leads cops on wild ‘half naked’ dash

A man who allegedly had sex with a horse sparked a wild police chase with his daring prison escape, which saw him sprint across a river in his boxer shorts.

Jonah Barrett-Lesko, 25, was caught “half-naked” in the Animas River in southwestern Colorado – just a mile away from where he escaped La Plata County Jail on Tuesday, September 21.

Police received a call from police about a man wearing a prison jumpsuit in the vicinity of a retail shop on Tuesday. They reported the convict missing.

According to the Durango Herald, Police Chief Bob Brammer spotted Barrett-Lesko running along the river 20 minutes after he fled.

“That’s what really attracted my attention to him because you don’t see half-naked people running through the woods in their boxer shorts,” he said.

According to the New York Post, the chief claimed that he was led by another officer on a chase back and forth across the river before additional officers arrived and surrounded him.

Barrett-Lesko, it was reported, had been alone in the recyard at the time of his escape. He managed to jump over the wall.

“There’s a video of him going up the wall, and then using his feet on one side and back on the other side,” Sheriff’s Lt. Pat Downs Downs told the paper.

“It appears he got out of some small hole in the upper fenced-in area of the old rec yard.”

Barrett-Lesko first made headlines when he was caught on camera allegedly having sexual intercourse with a horse during the middle of the night at a fairground on June 17.

As part of a plea deal, the animal cruelty charges were dropped and Barrett-Lesko was locked up for trespassing charges in connection to several burglaries, according to KRQE.

In due course, he will be charged with felony escape.
