Actor Christopher Clanton Sr., who is best known for playing the role of Savino Bratton on the hit show The Wire is a wanted man. Authorities say that he escaped police custody after being taken to an area hospital for a checkup.

Chris was arrested on Sept. 12, 2019, and charged with violating a protective order.

But before police brought him to Central Booking for processing, Chris was taken to Baltimore's Good Samaritan Hospital for a pre-existing medical condition.

While at the hospital, police say that Chris escaped on Friday. News outlets report that Clanton posted on Facebook that he “basically walked out of the front door.” 

Police describe the actor as 6’0″ and weighing 165 lbs. He also looks just like.... well, Savino from The Wire, an acclaimed HBO drama about Baltimore.

Anyone who has seen or knows of Clanton’s whereabouts are asked to call police.
