Island Police Log: Handcuff fun goes awry



SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Police received a call Friday night from a resident of Boomer Boulevard asking for help unlocking handcuffs.

According to the report, the man said he and a woman were “playing around,” and he handcuffed her only to find he couldn’t free her from the cuffs. Officer Eben Richardson arrived and assisted in releasing the woman from the restraints.
