Police officer gets stuck in handcuffs while training new recruits

In a bizarre incident a police officer got stuck in handcuffs while showing new recruits how to use them. The incident was reported in Northamptonshire, United Kingdom.

Scott Renwick, a core training sergeant with Northamptonshire Police, had to call the fire service after getting trapped in the faulty pair of handcuffs, according to Birmingham Live. He was forced to walk to the fire station, where firefighters used pedal cutters to free him.

“Well that wasn’t a good start to the day. Thanks to @northantsfire for cutting me out of some broken cuffs,” the training sergeant thanked Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service for rescuing him.
