Being handcuffed didn’t stop a man from running away with a police car in Kansas on Saturday.
Arrested by police near the town of Atwood, the 23-year-old American allegedly took advantage of the policeman’s stopping to offer help for a motorcyclist to get behind the wheel and escape, he said. reported the local NBC channel.
The event occurred as the policeman transported the man to the detention center.
Joshua Swartwout thus provoked a police chase of about an hour which ended when the stolen patrol was out of fuel.
Determined to confuse the police, the young man subsequently tried to run away while he was still handcuffed. But his last attempt will not have worked.
He was eventually taken to the detention center without further difficulty.
