Cuff justice! The policeman is forced to call in the fire brigade to free him from his OWN handcuffs after getting stuck while showing them to the recruits
- Sergeant Scott Renwick demonstrated the use of handcuffs to a group of recruits
- But removing the handcuffs again proved to be a trick and firefighters were called
- The Northamptonshire Police Sergeant said he should go to the nearest fire station for help
As a police sergeant, Scott Renwick knows a thing or two about handcuffing.
When asked to give a demonstration to some of the recruits, he had no problem snapping a pair of them around his own wrists.
Unfortunately, it turned out to be a little more difficult for him to take the handcuffs off again – and he had to call 999 colleagues to help.
Sgt Scott Renwick had to call the fire department to have a pair of handcuffs removed from him after he was stuck in them during a demonstration
The Northamptonshire Police Sergeant was showing new recruits how to use hinged handcuffs when the incident happened
To make matters worse, they insisted that he go – completely handcuffed – from Northamptonshire Force Headquarters to be released at a fire station about half a mile away.
When the news of his misfortune spread, even his boss joined the good-natured Rippung.
"I'd rather have chewed my arm than called the fire department," wrote Chief Constable Nick Adderley on Twitter.
Sergeant Renwick said he had nothing against his misfortune if it "put a smile on one face".
Mr Renwick tweeted after the incident saying, "This could improve my career."
In a separate tweet, the official said, “Well, that wasn't a good start to the day.
“Many thanks to the Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service for cutting me out of some broken cuffs.
