Description by OLDIES.com:
When a corrupt judge seeks refuge in an insane asylum, a journalist hot on his trail has himself committed as well to get the scoop on the inside story--a political crook is hiding from the police.
A corrupt judge on the run from the police decides to hide out in a mental asylum in order to escape arrest. Hoping to get to the bottom of the scam the judge was in on, a reporter/P.I. has him committed in order to smoke out the crooks. When the judge figures out his scheme, he starts a fight at the asylum, allowing a dangerous patient to escape.
