Earlier this week, getting ready for work.

I did a double take, and burst out laughing at this news. It takes a lot to make me laugh in the morning.

A young man was arrested – I’m not sure if he was trying to steal a car or if it was breaking and entering, but that’s really not the point of the story and it was way too early in the morning for that type of thing to sink in to my befuddled brain – OK I’ve lost my train of thought here..

So yes, he was arrested because when he began to run away, he got all muddled up in his pants – did they fall around his knees? Did he trip over them? Who knows. The thing is he had on those stupid oversize pants and they were his downfall. For once those ugly-ass things were put to some use.

Imagine the cops. Starting to run after the guy and watching him fall victim to his sartorial misstep.

They must have had a field day with that one.


Moral of the story: If you’re aspiring to a life of crime,  wearing oversize pants that hang under your butt might not be the most intelligent thing to do. It pretty much guarantees a short-lived career.


  1. Rachel says:

    first comment, yes!

    he’s a stupid fool to wear those pants, so its only just that he get caught doing stupid fool things..

  2. geogypsy says:

    Maybe all criminals should be required to wear these dumb-ass pants.

  3. pinklea says:

    Perfect! Sometimes justice IS served – in baggy, stupid pants.

  4. e says:

    Justice by means of a clothing malfunction…those cops must have laughed all the way to the cells…

  5. Big Brother says:

    Trying to rob someone while the police are close enough to give chase probably also means that he wasn’t the sharpest pencil in the pencil case as well as not being the sharpest dresser.

  6. geewits says:

    I love it! I actually think this has happened before. But you know those guys don’t read or watch the news, so he had no warning.

  7. Jazz says:

    Rachel – Maybe the lesson will slink in and he’ll become an ace thief.

    Gaelyn – It would cut down on criime no doubt

    Pink – There seems to be a consensus going here.

    e – Had I been a cop, I would have laughed a helluva lot

    BB – If I were a social worker PC type I’d say it’s because he had such a bad start in life. Or some other such excuse. But me? I’m a bitch. I laugh.

    Geewits – So THAT’s the explanation!!

  8. Em says:

    The ultimate wardrobe malfunction!

  9. tattytiara says:

    I’ve never been able to wrap my head around people who know they’re going to be doing illegal things and get tattoos stuck all over themselves. Permanent, identifiable markings really aren’t the best fashion accessory to wear to an armed robbery.

  10. Pearl says:

    That’s pretty much all that lousy “fashion” has going for it: ease of capture.

    Hmmm. Wonder if the police had anything to do with encouraging this style?!


  11. mrwriteon says:

    I love this story because it proves there is a modicum of justice in the universe.

  12. Jazz says:

    Em – Move over Janet!

    Tatty – You gotta wonder, eh?

    Pearl – The fashion police?

    Ian – My mom always said the only justice in the world is that “they’ll” die too. Of course she didn’t take those pants into account.

  13. lime says:

    that is pretty hilarious. serves the dope right.

  14. […] Word of advice: Don’t try to steal a car. […]
