Shorts Get Man in More Trouble

A naked man being arrested by the police at his home grabbed the wrong pair of shorts when it was time to go.

Tampa police report that officers responded to 18-year-old Joshua Andrew Burnett's home early Friday morning after his pregnant girlfriend called 911, accusing him of trying to smother her with a pillow.

When officers told Burnett he was under arrest, the still naked man grabbed a pair of jean shorts from the floor.

A report says officers asked to search the shorts for weapons and found $506 wrapped around Burnett's driver license, a plastic bag of marijuana and a bag of crack cocaine.

Burnett was charged with felony aggravated battery on a pregnant woman and several counts of drug possession. He was being held without bail.
