MESA, Ariz. (AP) — Mesa police say a ?25-year-old man who escaped police custody while handcuffed on Sept. 11 died 10 days later in a crash while driving a stolen motorcycle.

Police said Anthony Rosales had slipped through a gate of a booking area of a police detention facility after being arrested on suspicion of shoplifting.

According to police, Rosales was fatally injured Tuesday in a crash with another vehicle after he ran a red light on the stolen motorcycle.

The other driver wasn't injured, police said.
