Life is obviously comfortable in the confines of a prison cell. A man in North Carolina has been arrested for refusing to leave jail. Rodney Dwayne Valentine was imprisoned for injury to personal property on May 22. Around 8 a.m. on Saturday, he was released from the Rockingham County Jail.

Five hours later, Valentine was still hanging around the Sheriff’s office. He was informed that he would have to leave. Valentine insisted that deputies give him a ride to a nearby motel, but the officers told Valentine he would have to find his own transportation.

When Valentine refused to leave and find transportation, he was arrested for second-degree trespassing and placed in jail with a $500 bond.

Valentine will appear in court on Aug. 9.

Those who visit family or friends in prison are often taken aback by the luxurious lifestyle of many inmates. Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey made headlines earlier this month when he visited a prison in London for the filming of a TV show. Ramsey was angered by the lifestyle of inmates and the nice amenities they have access to.

“Even a professional chef on the outside doesn’t just walk into a kitchen that good,” he remarked.
