Man who slipped out of cuffs in California caught in Nevada

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a suspect who slipped out of handcuffs and escaped from the back seat of a patrol car in Southern California has been caught in Nevada.

San Bernardino County sheriff's officials say 31-year-old Charles Brown was arrested Tuesday in Las Vegas.

Brown was originally taken into custody Sunday in Victorville, California, on suspicion of transporting narcotics. Before he could be brought inside a police station he managed to wriggle out of the cuffs and get out of the parked car.
