Arrestee Slips Out of Handcuffs Leads Jersey City Police on Foot Chase

September 26, 2014  | 

A drug and weapons arrest in Jersey City, N.J., took a turn for the dramatic Thursday night when a man slipped out of handcuffs and led police on a foot chase through the streets, authorities said.

Police recovered a loaded handgun and drugs when they arrested two 34-year-old Jersey City men -- William Elliott and Shadeed Graham -- who were sitting in a car that smelled of marijuana on Orient Avenue near Martin Luther King Drive at around 10:15 p.m., police told NJ.com.

But as Graham was being escorted into a police vehicle, he slipped out of his handcuffs and escaped custody, officials said.

Several police units, including the Emergency Service Unit and a K9 officer were dispatched to assist in the pursuit, which ended when authorities found Graham hiding in bushes near the tracks, the report stated.

Handcuffing & Handcuffs are the hardest & most important step to do. It always seems to be the easiest in some minds, but that is where the shat can hit the fan. Handcuffs are the sign that ones freedom(s) are taken. Brother & Sisters in Uniform remember to practice & put em on quick. After that then check & re-adjust always.
