Handcuffed Guy Manages to Steal Police Car

A handcuffed man who stole a police car in Alabama has been arrested again. WIAT-TV reports Birmingham officers got a call of a burglary in progress; officers arrested the suspect yesterday and put him in handcuffs with his hands behind his back and placed him in the back of a police car. Officer Scott Thurmond says the suspect managed to get his handcuffs in front of him and drive away, but he made it less than a mile before ditching the vehicle. Officers were able to take him back into custody later in the day. He was still in the handcuffs. (More weird crimes stories.)
