Note to Self: Pull up your pants when robbing a store.
I never quite understood the reasoning for the sagging pants craze. You know the style where the guys wear their pants pulled halfway down, secured (barely) by a belt so their boxers show?
Well here is a case where this fashion statement came back to bite the guy where his pants weren’t covering…
Apparently around midnight, a guy was caught leaving a Beer City store in Pensacola, Florida through a smashed front door. The guy triggered an alarm when he broke in and the police responded by the time he was coming out. Pretty good response time, I’d say.
The guy’s hands were full of stolen packs of cigarettes, so when he saw the cops and tried to run, he was unable to hold up his sagging trousers. So now his pants fall down.
Have you ever tried to run like that? Well ask this guy, it doesn’t work. He tripped and fell over in the parking lot as he attempted to flee the scene.
When the responding officer caught up to him, “he had cigarettes scattered all around him, and his pants were down by his ankles,” said the Sheriff’s Office spokesman.
The guy was charged with criminal mischief, burglary, theft and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Hopefully next time his Mom will yell at him to pull up his pants before going out. Even if he was 37-years-old.
Be Safe, Be Prepared, Pull up your pants.
