An American man held on drug charges in Bali is on the run after escaping from a notorious prison on the Indonesian island.
Christian Beasley broke out of the Kerobokan Prison Monday morning with a fellow inmate, who was re-captured immediately.
The inmates reportedly sawed through a ceiling before climbing over a prison wall.
Indonesian authorities arrested the 32-year-old for drug possession back in August.
He was caught carrying six grams of “hashish” — a drug from cannabis — and was awaiting sentencing at the prison.
The maximum penalty for some drug charges in Indonesia is death.
