PHILADELPHIA — Alleged cop-killer Rasheed Scrugs was caught trying to undo his shackles with a paper clip before a court appearance earlier this week, authorities said.

The career criminal, who allegedly gunned down Officer John Pawlowski in 2009, made the daring move on Tuesday, after corrections officers had taken him from the Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility to an area hospital for a medical procedure, said city prison spokesman Robert Eskind.
