POINCIANA, Fla. - A teenager who had been arrested fled in handcuffs, forcing two central Florida to be locked down while authorities search for him.
Discovery Intermediate School and Poinciana Elementary were locked down Tuesday. The 16-year-old suspect was picked up after deputies responded to a call about a suspicious person.
Deputies handcuffed the teen, who gave a false name, and were putting him in a patrol car when he struck one of them and tried to head butt him. The teen broke free and fled.
