In what must be regarded as the ultimate reverse Houdini escape in recent history, a man who had been arrested, handcuffed behind his back, and shoved into the back seat of a police car somehow got free, somehow got a gun that the arresting officers had missed, and shot himself in the head.

The police are baffled.
My recommendation: if you ever get arrested, handcuffed, and put in the back of a police car, tell the officer about your concealed handgun before you try to get loose. Don’t let yourself be tempted to get out of double-locked handcuffs in order to get your gun to do away with yourself on the way to police headquarters. It’s much better to wait until you get to the station house. That will really create bad publicity for the entire police department, not just one policeman.
