* At one point in ''[[BaldursGate Baldur's Gate II]]'' you have to get yourself sent to Spellhold - which is actually [[BedlamHouse the local asylum]], but it plays out similarly. The easiest way to do so is to tell the local Lord you must be deranged because you travel with [[CloudCuckooLander Minsc]]. After being subjected to Minsc's conversation for a few minutes he wholeheartedly agrees and sends you there forthwith.

* In the {{Series/Supernatural}} episode Folsom Prison Blues, Dean and Sam break into a museum. It is an unusually clumsy break-in for the normally stealthy brothers. They are arrested and thrown into jail. Which is exactly where they want to be. They were contacted by the Warden, a friend of their father, to help get rid of a ghost who was targeting the inmates.

* ''TheSarahConnorChronicles''. Vick finds one of his targets has been thrown into jail, so he follows suit by the simple method of walking up to a group of police officers and punching one of them. Of course being a Terminator he can get out at any time just by knocking the cell door off its hinges. Notably, this one manages to get around the big issue of being sent to the same area as the prisoner in question, because the target is in temporary holding, just like Vick would be when assaulting a cop. Once he's inside, he can literally just rip the doors off the walls until he finds his target.

* [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] in a ''Magazine/{{MAD}}'' joke regarding ''PrisonBreak''. The joke points out the FridgeLogic associated with Michael's plan, saying that even if he clears his brother's name, he'll have to serve his own sentence for something he actually did.

* ThePunisher often pulls this off, though in his case it's less committing crimes and more strolling up to the police station and surrendering. In one story he does just that when he hears Daredevil's been arrested, killing crooks while he waits for Daredevil to show up asking for help.
