A man suspected of stealing discs from a video store was tripped up by his baggy pants, falling twice before police captured him, authorities said.
James Green, 30, of Detroit, took about a half-dozen DVDs on Sunday night, and initially made his getaway on a bicycle, police said.
Officers spotted him in an alley, and he abandoned the bike and ran, but his pants fell to his ankles and he tripped, Ferndale Detective Sgt. Patrick Jones told The Daily Tribune of Royal Oak. "Finally, he kicked off his pants and shoes" and then jumped a fence into the backyard of a house where he was captured, Jones said.
On Monday, Green pleaded guilty to resisting arrest and retail fraud and was ordered jailed for 30 days.
