2 of 4 Oklahoma Jail Shower Escapees Captured, Sheriff Says

Two of the four inmates who escaped through the ceiling in the shower of the Caddo County Jail in Anadarko, Oklahoma, this weekend have been captured, Caddo County Sheriff Gene Cain told CNN Monday.

The two men, Dylan Ray Three Irons, 21, and Prime Brown, 23, were taken into custody in Chickasha, Oklahoma, the sheriff said, less than 20 miles away from the jail.

The men were spotted by Grady County District Attorney investigators as they were walking to a convenience store. Both men "appeared very wet and dirty," according to the Grady County Sheriff's Office.

The four inmates made a clean getaway Sunday after prying open a maintenance hatch in their shower – the first escape from the 2-year-old Caddo County jail, Cain said.

They broke a lock on the hatch above the shower head, Cain told CNN affiliate KFOR-TV, and then moved through a crawl space until they reached a wall, where they knocked out cement block or two. That got them to an unlocked door outside the jail area, Cain explained.

See "Star Wars" Bloopers 36 Years Later

It's 36 years late, but "Star Wars" fans are finally getting to laugh at a never-before-seen blooper reel from behind the scenes of "A New Hope," the very first movie.

A.J. Hammer, host of HLN's Showbiz Tonight, shares the footage.

“What's really cool about this, and particularly exciting, is the fact that as iconic a movie as it is, there is precious little behind the scenes footage,” Hammer says.

As the story goes, J.W. Rinzler, an editor for Lucasfilm, was digging through the archives for a behind the scenes book when he discovered this little gem.

Enjoy!

Should O.J. Simpson Be Considered for Rose Bowl Honor?

As a college football player, O.J. Simpson's talent was undeniable when he took USC to two Rose Bowls and rushed for 100 yards both times. Now a panel of members from the Football Writers Association of America is considering him for the  All-Century Class honor for those performances.

“What they're trying to do is put together an all-Rose Bowl team and take one representative from every decade. He's been nominated to be one of the three – they’re going to pick one out of three from the 1960s," CNN's John Berman reports.

But can you separate football and the man?

"Hard to argue that he wasn't the best player on the field in the 1960s," Berman says, "but it is a controversy."

The Football Writers say they're making their judgment on just what happens on the field.

Volunteers Come Together After Superstorm Sandy

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a Staten Island, New York, volunteer organization comes together to help repair 2,000 homes without using a single federal dollar. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

An all-volunteer organization called "Yellow Boots" formed after Superstorm Sandy.

Jason Vogel, a Yellow Boots contributor, says 'I'm not looking for anything, I'm not looking for anything at all. I just want to be there to help because if I wasn't here, and this were to happen to my family, I would want someone to be out there to help my family."

If you would like to donate your time or contribute, visit www.yellowboots.org.
