While we have been criticizing public officials for their criminalization of baggy pants, it appears that we can now add the objection that they are assisting crime by requiring tailored outfits. Columbus police have a video showing a man who failed in a bank robbery effort when he tripped over his baggy pants.
The baggy gunman entered the bank in the afternoon and assaulted two employees before fleeing with money. However, his baggy pants tripped him up and then the dye pack went off in the money. He proceeded to drop the bag and flee (as best he could) in his baggy pants.
This was not, however, the first felon foiled by baggy pants, here.
