(Scroll down for video) A man who successfully fled from police custody, was forced to call them back to remove his handcuffs, police in Texas said.

Dyonta Rose, 29, who escaped from police custody, was rearrested when he called 911 to complain of pain caused by the handcuffs, which were still on him.

DeSoto Police said that Rose, was arrested on drug charges on Saturday, after police allegedly discovered narcotics inside the backpack he was wearing. The officer handcuffed him and placed Rose into his police cruiser.

However, when the arresting officer left the car door unlocked, he ran away. “The suspect was able to escape due to apparent equipment failure, which has since been rectified,” DeSoto Police said in a statement.

He was not gone for long. Later that night, Rose called 911 and complained that his circulation in his arm was being cut off by the handcuffs, which he was unable to remove.

Police officers went to the address he called from. Rather than unlocking the handcuffs, they put him under arrest. Rose is facing charges of felony possession of a controlled substance, and escape and tampering with evidence.

He also faces a misdemeanor charge of marijuana possession.
