TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Some fashion statements draw more attention than others, and wearing handcuffs while walking near the Tulsa County Courthouse is one that got noticed.

A man walking near the courthouse wearing handcuffs on one wrist drew the attention of passers-by who contacted law officers Friday.

But it turns out it was just his idea of a fashion statement, said Tulsa County Sheriff's Sgt. Jody Britt.

The man was wearing goth clothing with one handcuff on his wrist and the other end dangling, making it appear as if he had escaped custody, Sgt. Jody Britt said.

"Wearing a set of handcuffs near a courthouse is not exactly the most intelligent thing you could do," Sgt. Jody Britt said.

Deputies stopped the man and checked for warrants. None were found and he was released.
