Handcuffed Escapee Still In Cuffs 4 Days Later When Caught

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say a handcuffed man who managed to escape from Kansas City, Kansas, officers was still wearing the handcuffs when he was arrested four days later.

The 42-year-old man was wanted for outstanding warrants when officers first apprehended him Wednesday night. Kansas City, Kansas, Police spokesman Officer T.J. Tomasic says the man apparently managed to work his cuffed hands from behind his back underneath his body to his front.

Tomasic says most of the department’s police vehicles have windows and locks that cannot be operated from the back seat, but this time the arrested man was likely in a spare car and was able to get out.

The man was spotted driving Sunday afternoon and surrendered after a short pursuit.
