Burglary suspect found hanging upside-down after losing pants on spiked fence

An Arizona man learned what could go wrong if you have baggy pants and you're attempting to flee from committing a crime. You could get stuck hanging upside down by your pants.

Tucson Unified School District spokeswoman Michelle Valenzuela told Tucson News Now that the incident began Friday morning, when a locksmith spotted a man trying to break into some rooms at the Miles-Exploratory Learning Center.

The locksmith spooked the alleged burglar, who tried to get away. Unfortunately for the suspect, he was unable to make the leap over the spiked fence and was caught hanging upside-down, with his underwear exposed to the world. 

At that point, passers-by Jesse Sensibar and Kristin Woodall took a quick photo and posted the story to Facebook, where it quickly went viral. Tucson police were on the scene shortly afterward and arrested the unidentified suspect.

"I don't know what his story was but it must not have been good enough," Sensibar wrote on Facebook. "Fifteen minutes later when I went back by the other direction going home he was cuffed up in the backseat. He smiled for the camera."
