Fleeing Man Bounces Off Bulletproof Glass (VIDEO)

Travis Copeland, age 19, was in a Zion courtroom Friday when, rather than facing further prison time, he decided to take off.

With officers closing in, Copeland ran across the skyway that crosses Washington St., only to realize his best escape option was through the skyway's window.

Sadly for Copeland, the windows are made of bulletproof glass. He bounced off.

After one futile attempt to bust through, he's surrounded by police and recaptured.
