Twitch streamer Buddha and his character Lang Buddha, one of the most popular on the Grand Theft Auto V NoPixel roleplaying server, nearly pulled off the greatest escape from jail ever today.
After being arrested by Officer Sur Lee, played by Twitch streamer Sur_Lee, Buddha took a ride down to the slammer to be jailed and formally charged.
Just as Officer Lee unlocked the building door for Buddha to walk in, the infamous criminal took off. Buddha—knowing the layout of the jailhouse quite well thanks to his regular appearances—sprinted through two sets of doors and ran upstairs.
Quickly realizing the next set of doors would be locked, Buddha decided the next best option would be to hide in plain sight. He pushed himself into the corner up against the wall and waited to see if the plan would work.
Just as Buddha drew it up, Officer Lee had tunnel vision as he gave chase up the stairs, running straight past the fugitive.
Buddha ran the opposite direction with the taste of freedom on his lips, but alas, the exterior door was locked. The only thing left to do was to meet back up with Officer Lee outside of a jail cell and surrender to the strong arm of the law.
“Oh, you think you’re funny, huh?” Lee said once he found Buddha waiting for him downstairs. “You think you’re a wise guy, huh?”
“Kinda, man!” Buddha replied.
“You think you’re just, ‘oh, look at me, I’m Lang Buddha, I can just do some Chinese ninja shit and fuckin’ hide in corners’,” Lee said mockingly.
Officer Lee may have played it tough once he found Buddha, but he had been panicking throughout his search, fearing he had let one of the most well-known criminals in the city slip through his grasps.
“Where did he go!? Oh shit!” Sur_Lee said as he checked each door to make sure Buddha hadn’t gone through them.
Fortunately, the circus act that was Buddha’s escape was captured from both perspectives of the hunter and the hunted, although it’s difficult to say which one makes the whole ordeal seem the most ridiculous.
