Handcuffed woman escapes custody

A US woman was captured on camera slipping out of her handcuff and escaping a police station.

Police soon caught up with Amber Gonzales, 30, as an hour later she returned to the same hotel where she had been arrested in the first place.

It all began when Gonzales allegedly stole a mobile phone from a hotel cleaning cart at the Baymont Inn in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
