WATCH: Two People Try To Escape From Police Custody While Still Handcuffed

In honour of the launch of Business Insider’s new Law & Order vertical, we want to introduce you to all aspects of the criminal world.

And that includes the most entertaining aspects. In this MSNBC news clip from 2009, two people in New Zealand tried to escape their court appearance.

But, somehow, the men apparently didn’t realise they were still handcuffed and wound up tied around a light pole.

We can’t make this stuff up. Watch the video below, courtesy of kingkongphoto123:
