PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Pensacola burglary suspect was literally caught with his pants down while trying to run away.
An Escambia County deputy responded to an alarm at a convenient store early Tuesday morning and reported seeing 37-year-old Robert Pittman exiting through a smashed-out front door while carrying several packs of cigarettes.
Deputies say Pittman tried to flee, but the handfuls of cigarettes prevented him from holding up his pants, which fell down and tripped him before he could make it out of the parking lot.
Pittman was charged with criminal mischief, burglary, theft and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was being held on $12,000 bail.
