Handcuffed Man Walking Along Palmetto Expressway Claims He Was Abducted by Police Impersonators

Categories: Crime

Well, this certainly is a whole new way to get stuck on the Palmetto.

Earlier this morning a man was found walking along the busy Palmetto Expressway with his feet bare and his hands bound behind his back. When police questioned the man he claimed that he had been abducted by police impostors and left on the busy road.

Police arrived at the scene near where the Palmetto passes over Okeechobee Road this morning after recieving tips of a man wondering barefoot in just yellow shorts and black top.

According to CBS Miami, the man said he was abducted near his home on 15073 SW 43rd Lane in Miami. Several men jumped out of a black SUV with what he said looked like police lights and forced him inside and told him he was under arrest.

The man said he then jumped out of the vehicle to escape while it was traveling on the Palmetto.

The handcuffs used were not standard police issue.

The man had been transported to Miami-Dade Police headquarters in Doral for further questions.
