Charles Hemmen escaped police custody after he

managed to roll down the back window, wriggle out enough to open the door from the outside with his hands in handcuffs, and take off on foot [leading] to a two-hour manhunt involving six nearby police departments, sent the nearby Pine Run Elementary School into lockdown, and triggered automatic warning calls to hundreds of nearby residents warning them to stay inside and lock their windows and doors.

And what heinous crime led to this frantic response, you ask. "Floating" $1900 worth of bad checks at the Montgomeryville Cycle Center.
