Saggy Pants Trip Up Escape Attempt By Handcuffed Florida Burglary Suspect
Meet Jordan Bodden.
The 19-year-old’s saggy pants stymied an escape attempt Sunday evening after the suspected burglar was detained by Florida cops, according to a police report.
After being handcuffed by Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office deputies investigating a series of vehicle break-ins in Lake Worth, Bodden broke away from cops and sought to escape on foot.
The teenager’s clothing, however, did not cooperate in the getaway effort.
As Bodden fled, his pants slid down to his ankles, causing him to trip (and apparently fall on his face, judging from the above booking photo). A deputy noted that he had a grip on Bodden’s pants, but a “button broke or opened as he was running, triggering the trouser tumble.
Bodden was then scooped up by deputies and charged with three burglary counts, escape, and resisting arrest without violence. He is locked up in the Palm Beach County jail in lieu of $31,000 bond.
