I've no problem with the actions of Drago (apparently he has technical aptitude), but the guard has got to be the most idiotic guard in the history of this strip. As you can clearly see, the cell's door is a bunch of bars. This means that it keeps the inmates in, but lets you see inside the cell as well. You should be able to see what's going on in there without opening the door. Yet this is what the guard does, thereby freeing Drago and causing the guard to have a tremendous seizure which knocks off his hat.
I can only think that Drago was doing something in his cell, or faking something, that enabled him to hide his wings and cause some alarm in the guard. After all, he couldn't have put on the wings in the time it took the guard to open the door. Maybe he pretended to hang himself or something.
