Cue the Boom-Chicka-Boom Music

Don't get excited, this is not an ad for an upcoming gay porn film. Instead it's a photo of fugitive John McCluskey being arrested yesterday. Dubbed as "a modern day Bonnie and Clyde", McCluskey, 45, and his alleged accomplice, Casslyn Welch, 44, (also his fiancee and cousin), have been on the run from the law since July 30. McCluskey and two other prisoners escaped from a prison in Arizona on July 30, allegedly with Welch's help, and led authorities on a six-state chase before being apprehended yesterday in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest in eastern Arizona.
Even though McCluskey's not a pin-up porn star, he is sort of hot, right? Well, if you like your men in prison for 15 years for attempted second-degree murder, aggravated assault and discharge of a firearm. Also, McCluskey and Welch have been linked to the slayings of Greg and Linda Haas of Tecumseh, Oklahoma, whose burned bodies were found in a travel trailer Aug. 4 on a remote ranch near Santa Rosa, N.M. After a SWAT team arrested McCluskey and Welch, both had weapons lying near them, and McCluskey said he would have shot his arresting officers if he could have reached for his gun. Wow. Get us this guy's phone number, he knows how to party!
