Typically, the police have to go through a bit of effort to nab a criminal for the big arrest. However, for a local police department in Arizona, baggy pants and a spiked fence proved to be two unlikely components of a recent arrest.
It all began when a small time crook broke into the grounds of Eiles elementary school in Tuscon, Arizona. The crook was attempting to break into classrooms at the school, when he was apparently spooked by a locksmith.
The man tried to flee from the school, but ended up snagging his baggy pants on the spiked portion of a gate, which forced him to spend several minutes upside down with his pants down before being freed, and subsequently arrested by the police.
A school official later revealed that no students were in danger during the incident due to spring break, which is always a good thing.
Even better, the man also stuck around on the fence long enough for an impromptu photo that was taken by Jesse Sensibar and Kristin Woodall as they were passing through the area.
I don’t know what his story was, but it must not have been good enough Sensibar revealed in a statement to KGUN television. Fifteen minutes later, when I went back by the other direction going home he was cuffed up in the backseat of the patrol car. He smiled for the camera.
Sensibar later posted the photo of the helpless crook online, which has since gone viral. As for the would be burglar, no further details regarding the case have been released by the Tuscon police department, but we suspect he will have plenty of time to rethink his fashion tastes while in prison.
