Police: Escaped Suspect Called 911 For Handcuff Help

DESOTO, Texas, Feb. 25 (UPI) — Police in Texas said a man who escaped custody was recaptured when he called 911 to complain about pain resulting from his handcuffs.

DeSoto police said Dyonta Rose, 29, was arrested on drug charges Saturday when he was found to be carrying a backpack with suspected narcotics and he was handcuffed before escaping when the arresting officer left him alone, reported Tuesday.

“The suspect was able to escape due to apparent equipment failure, which has since been rectified,” DeSoto police said in a statement.

Dallas Police said Rose called 911 later the same evening and complained the circulation in his arm was being cut off by the handcuffs he was still wearing.

Rose was placed back under arrest and is facing felony charges of possession of a controlled substance, escape and tampering with evidence. He is also facing a misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana.
