SARASOTA (FOX 13) - The suspect who allegedly escaped from Sarasota police is back in custody -- with handcuffs on both of his hands.
Demetrius Downer was being arrested for armed robbery Wednesday when police say he broke free and was able to escape with one handcuff on.
At some point after that, the smiling suspect apparently shared a photo on social media showing off his lone handcuff.
Officers got the last laugh, though, after U.S. Marshals tracked him down Friday. They shared their own photo -- one of Downer securely shackled, decidedly less exuberant than in his previous picture.
