Two Oregon inmates who had nearly finished their jail sentences now face multiple felony charges after allegedly getting drunk on hand sanitizer while on a supervised work detail, stealing a Sheriff's Office four-wheeler and making a run for it.

Shawn McCallister, 34, and Christopher Turre, 30, are accused of drinking 120-proof sanitizing solution during their workday at the sheriff’s office animal rescue facility southeast of Bend, ramming through a gate on an ATV and fleeing from custody late on Wednesday morning.

Now, both men have a court date scheduled for November 21, with bond in the new cases set for each of them at $50,000, Deschutes County Sheriff's Lieutenant Joshua McGowan told

Turre - Days - Mischief - Charges

Turre was in for 100 days on first- and second-degree criminal mischief charges.

'Both of them have been out here at the rescue ranch, helping with the horses, and they really liked the work, because it's part of giving back to the community,' Sheriff's Captain Michael Shults told KTVZ. 'So we’re a little shocked they would leave.'

Hand - Solution - Percent - Alcohol - Water

But they did, after becoming 'very intoxicated' on the hand sanitizing solution that contains 60 percent alcohol, which they mixed with water and juice packs.
