Of all the crazy ways criminals have attempted to evade arrest, you know like jumping from a building while heavily pregnant, dress up as sheep, covering oneself in grease, undergoing a sex change and undergoing a sex change again, what this Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania man did is just, ewww.
City police say a man tried to avoid arrest by rolling in dog feces. Police on patrol in the area of Academy Street and Carey Avenue at about 5:50 p.m. Monday said they observed a man, later identified as Maurice Franklin, 45, of Wilkes-Barre, jump from the curb line in front of several moving vehicles. Officers made contact with the Franklin and found him to be allegedly under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Franklin allegedly had slurred speech and could not stand without swaying. As officers were speaking to Franklin, he told them he was walking around the dog feces that was on the sidewalk. Officer Stanley Wychock advised the Franklin that he was under arrest and told him to place his hands behind his back, police said. At that point, Franklin allegedly jumped to the ground and started rolling in dog feces. He then allegedly stated that officers could not arrest him because he is “covered in (expletive),” police said. Franklin was taken into custody, cited and held until sober, police said.Say no to drugs, kids.
