School Prowler Caught With His Baggy Pants Down -- Hanging From Spike Fence

A not-so-great escape.

This suspect didn’t get collared. He got pantsed.

A man prowling on the fenced campus of an elementary school in Tucson, Arizona, reportedly got his baggy pants stuck on a spiked gate as he tried to flee. Here’s the upside-down, pantsless result, photographed by passersby Jesse Sensibar and Kristin Woodall:

The man was apparently spooked on the grounds of Miles Elementary School by a locksmith, who reportedly said he saw the man trying to break into classrooms on Friday, a school official told ABC 15. School was not in session at the time.

Sensibar wrote on Facebook that police rushed to the school “two cars deep.” He said he later saw the man cuffed in the back seat of a squad car.

A police spokeswoman told The Huffington Post on Monday that cops talked to the man, but she had no other information.

Corey Greenhill, general manager of the nearby Welcome Diner, told HuffPost he saw the man acting erratically before he got snagged on the fence. The man walked into the restaurant, borrowed the cordless telephone and walked out with it, Greenhill said. Greenhill followed him and noted that the man had tried to call the police three times. “He seemed confused,” Greenhill said.
