All well that ends well…

That an alleged burglar managed to get caught with his pants around his ankles was not nearly as surprising as the fact that he did it while hanging upside down.

A locksmith saw a man trying to force his way into classrooms at Miles Elementary School in Tuscon, Arizona. The man beat a hasty retreat upon realizing he was being watched, but his pants got caught as he scaled the school’s spiked metal fence, ABC affiliate KNXV reported.

…and there he was, upside down, when police arrived.

Jesse Sensibar wrote on Facebook that he came across the man while driving by, but by the time he turned around to help police had arrived.

“One more reason not to jump fences in baggy pants,” he wrote.

“I don’t know what his story was, but it must not have been good enough,” Sensibar added. “Fifteen minutes later, when I went back by the other direction going home he was cuffed up in the backseat [of the patrol car].”

No worse for the wear, the man smiled for the camera, Sensibar concluded.
