A Brooklyn cellphone crook’s poor wardrobe choices led to his arrest when his saggy jeans tripped him up during his getaway attempt and allowed cops to chase him down, police said
Joel Donaldson, 21, snatched the cell phone of victim by just after yielding an half hearted punch on her face at around 2:30 p.m. at Court and Remsen streets, just steps from Borough Hall. He then tried to get away on foot, but couldn’t get far as the slight edged blue jeans leaving his boxer shorts exposed kept on slipping down while he was at his initial sprint.
A cop, directing the traffic nearby, observed the artless situation of the snatcher and equalized his both inner and outer breaths to approach behind Donaldson on foot.
Donaldson made it only about a block before his pants were completely around his ankles, allowing the officer to tackle him near Joralemon Street.
“He was zigzagging all over the place, but he couldn’t run because his pants was falling down,” witness Arlene Williams said.
“This cop saw it, and he went right after him.’’
Donaldson was arrested two blocks from Brooklyn Criminal Court and charged with robbery, cops said.
He committed the ultimate crime of fashion as his act in such a poor and inactive way that it proved to be a warning for the explicit association with deplorable attitude. Thus causing some how reduction in the followers of favored trend.
———————————- HERE WE REVIEW ANOTHER STORY 😀 ———————————–
When a police officer tells a suspect to put his hands up he’s not normally faced with the assailant’s pants falling down to his ankles and then having the unenviable task of pulling them up.
But that’s what happened in Minneapolis when a cop arrested Frank Irving Wiggins – he suffered a wardrobe malfunction which led to a Court of Appeals case never before heard.
Police officer Kara Breci and her partner had spotted a possible drug deal in a car in a burger joint parking lot in the Minnesota city in November 2008.
They ordered the men out of their vehicle and told them to put their hands in the air.
That’s when Wiggins’ baggy pants, which were already dangerously low at the knees, fell to his ankles.
Breci pulled the jeans up and found a .38-caliber pistol inside the front pocket. Another man admitted that a plastic bag in the car contained marijuana.
Wiggins was convicted of possession of a firearm by an ineligible person and was sentenced to five years in prison.
Wiggins, 24, went on to challenge the legality of the officer hoisting his pants which led the case to be heard in the state Court of Appeals.
Judge Kevin G. Ross who presided over the case wrote in an opinion filed Tuesday: ‘This case requires us to determine the constitutionality of a novel police procedure which, as far as we can tell, has never been reviewed on appeal by this court or any other’.
Officer Breci and her partner had encountered Wiggins and another man in a car in what was deemed a high drug activity area.
A third man got into the back seat but he wasn’t carrying any burgers which caused the police to be suspicious.
The officers approached and when the third passenger admitted he had a bag of marijuana the men were ordered out of the car – leading to the pants on the ground situation.
When Breci felt the gun through Wiggins’ pants and asked him about it he denied knowing what it was. Breci removed the gun and arrested him.
Wiggins tried to keep the gun evidence from being revealed in his case citing unlawful seizure and pat-search but was denied.
