Foiled by the Pants…of Justice!

Once again, a criminal has been foiled not by careful police procedures, the American justice system or the slow bitch goddess that is Karma. Nope, this time, he was foiled by nothing more than a simple pair of pants with a taste for vengeance.

The AP reports that a pair of pants stopped a crook from running from the cops.

Police responded to a burglar alarm at a “convenient store.” That sounds mighty handy. It must be one of those stores with pneumatic legs that follows you around where ever you go in case you ever need something.

Officers spotted a man running out of a smashed front door with an armload of cigarettes. He must really need the Camel Cash for that iron lung.

Unfortunately, the armload of cigarettes prevented him pulling his pants up as he fled the scene on foot. He tripped and fell, and police captured him. Then after they were able to catch their breath (not from running after him but from laughing so hard), the slapped the cuffs on him and took him to jail.
