A woman in Freeport escaped from police after she slipped out of handcuffs but was captured soon after.

Luckily, I've never been in that situation. If I got arrested, handcuffed, and taken to jail, I would be too freaked out to figure out a way to escape. Especially, thinking that they will eventually find me and it would make the situation even worse.

Apparently, suspects with experience keep calm when they get busted because they come up with ways to get away all the time.

Recently, it happened it Freeport.

According to journalstandard.com,

"A Freeport woman has been charged with escape after she fled from a police squad car. During transport to Stephenson County Jail, she was able to slip out of one of her handcuffs and claimed to be hyperventilating. She asked the officer for air, and a rear window was rolled down. She reached through the bars on the outside of the window and opened the squad car door from the outside. When the squad stopped, she opened the door and ran. She was taken into custody after a short foot pursuit."

Pretty smart move. Too bad she couldn't use he brain for good instead of evil.
