Hate to be the Buffalo police about now...

Suspect cuffed to chair escapes from Buffalo police

(April 27, 2011) BUFFALO — If you’re in Buffalo and see a man handcuffed to a chair, call police. They’d like the chair back, along with the guy shackled to it.

Authorities are looking for a robbery suspect who escaped from a Buffalo police station by slipping out a back door while handcuffed to a chair.

Police tell Buffalo media outlets that 58-year-old John Caesar of Buffalo was taken into custody Tuesday for questioning in connection with the theft of money from the Anchor Bar, the restaurant known for inventing the city’s famous chicken wings.

Officials say Caesar was handcuffed to a chair in a police station when he escaped around 4 p.m. Police say the chair is missing and Caesar may still be handcuffed to it.

  1. My husband: "I wonder if the chair will press charges."

  2. Well, if you had been taken hostage, handcuffed to a felon and absconded with, you might press charges too!

  3. Father just said, "Maybe the chair was an accomplice."
