It seems the fashion trend of men wearing baggy, low-slung pants, (apparently inspired by the prison set) has tripped up a few criminals. (Couldn't resist.) Several examples are given, but my favorite may be this one. A suspect was being led to the patrol car when he escaped. His pants fell down, causing him to roll about a bit in traffic. He got out of the pants and ran to a mall, where - one imagines - he felt his handcuffed, pants-less self would blend. A 61 year-old grandmother of ten spotted him in front of J.C. Penney and grabbed him - holding him until police arrived.
