Arius Hopkins pulled a fast one on the NYPD.
Mr. Hopkins was initially arrested at the Parkside Houses in Allerton yesterday at 10:40 pm on an alleged domestic violence charge.
The police caught Mr. Hopkins with a handgun in the park across the street from the development. After taking away his gun and cuffing Mr. Hopkins the police began to search the park for drugs he allegedly had thrown.
Mr. Hopkins took advantage of the cop's lack of attention and ran off with his hands cuffed behind his back.
The police continue to investigate the disappearance of Mr. Hopkins.
