This has to be one of the easiest arrests ever.

On Saturday, 21-year-old Aaron M. Perez of Centralia, Washington and a friend bought some handcuffs at a thrift store.  The friend slapped the cuffs on Aaron and threw the key on the lawn.Turns out the handcuffs worked and they couldn't find the key.

Aaron was trapped and decided to go to the cops for help.  I'm not sure why he thought the cops would be a better choice than, like, an auto body shop with tools that can cut metal. So Aaron went to the police station, knocked on the door, and asked for help.

They ran his name and found out he had an outstanding warrant. He was arrested.  There's no word if they re-cuffed him.
