DESOTO , Texas, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- Wonder how he dialed…?
A Texas man who was able to escape from police on Saturday night is back in custody after he called 911 to report that his handcuffs were too tight.
Dyonta Rose was handcuffed and arrested on Saturday on drug charges after DeSoto police allegedly found narcotics in his backpack. When the officer left Rose alone, the 29-year-old was able to escape while still wearing his handcuffs.
Later that evening, Rose called 911 and requested an ambulance because the cuffs were cutting off his circulation. After Dallas police responded to the call, DeSoto police took Rose back into custody.
Rose is now looking at felony charges of possession of a controlled substance, escape, tampering with evidence and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
“The suspect was able to escape due to apparent equipment failure, which has since been rectified,” a spokesperson for the DeSoto Police Department told CBS Dallas-Fort Worth.
At least he didn’t call 911 about raw waffles.
