Naquan Thompson escaped from a Staten Island stationhouse on Wednesday after managing to slip off his handcuffs while being escorted out of the prison — and one cameraman got it all on tape.

The incident — which led to a wild chase and the eventual capture of the fugitive — was a huge embarrassment for the police department, and the cop responsible has been suspended.

According to the New York Post, officers didn’t realize their gaffe until a cameraman, who took footage of the chain gang escort and watched the event unfold, pointed out that the man in question had escaped. To make matters worse, video of the unfathomable incident was posted to the web, which means the world can watch the Staten Island Police Department’s big blunder.
