A man in handcuffs in the back of a Seattle PD cruiser took the vehicle on a two-mile joy ride, reports the Seattle PI.com.
Officers investigating a burglary at Wing Luke Elementary at 2 a.m. today found and arrested the unnamed suspect, who was able to maneuver his handcuffed wrists in front of him and crawl into the front seat of the patrol car because the partition screen was lowered.

Officers from the Tukwila PD, a King County Sheriff's Office helicopter and a police dog re-arrested the subject around 6 a.m., near his home in South Seattle.
