Handcuffed Fla. man opened car door, escaped

Ridgh Genesis Achille, 19, escaped after complaining he was claustrophobic and couldn't breathe

Associated Press

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. — Police in central Florida say a man who was handcuffed somehow managed to open a police cruiser's door and escape after complaining he was claustrophobic and couldn't breathe.

Altamonte Springs police say the officer had opened the windows slightly for 19-year-old Ridgh Genesis Achille, who had been arrested Friday night on a shoplifting charge. On the way to the jail, the man somehow opened the door from the outside and took off running.
