Czech man shamed in handcuff hazard 捷克男子玩手銬「漏氣」求救

A Czech man who thoughtlessly handcuffed himself ended up at a police station begging for help. But the police took him for an escaped criminal, the CTK news agency said.

The 48-year-old man found the handcuffs in a trashcan in the southern Czech town of Brno, then took them to a pub where he bet his friends he could free himself with the help of a piece of wire, the way action heroes would do.

When he failed, he walked to the police station, but the officers did not believe his story and looked into his background to check if he was clean.

“The desperate handcuffed man first came begging for help at the police station, but he failed and had to look up a locksmith in the end,” CTK quoted a police spokeswoman as saying.(AFP)

捷克新聞社報導,一名沒有考慮清楚就把自己銬上手銬的捷克男子最後到警局求助,卻被警察當成逃犯。

這位四十八歲男子在捷克南部布爾諾城的一個垃圾桶裡撿到這副手銬後,帶著它去酒吧和朋友打賭,說他可以像動作片裡的英雄一樣,靠一根鐵絲解開銬住自己的手銬。

結果他失敗了,只好走去警局求助,不過警員不相信他的說法,反而去調查他是否有犯罪前科。

捷克新聞社引述一名女警的話表示:「這個被手銬銬著的無助男子先到警局求援,結果警方幫不上忙,最後只好轉而求助鎖匠。」(法新社╱翻譯:袁星塵)
