Man Stuck in Ventilation System "Playing Hide and Seek"

When a would-be burglar was caught stuck in a store's ventilation system, he's got a handy excuse: he was playing hide and seek!

Deputies said Hall had removed the ventilation cover, crawled through the vent, got stuck and set off a fire extinguisher that sprayed powder all over the store, Chiominto said. [...]

Hall told deputies he was playing hide and seek on the roof with some other adults and decided to hide in the ventilation system.

When no one guessed where he was, the other players gave up looking, Hall told police.


I live in Delaware and was just waiting for this to get some national attention, it's rife with comedy gold. The article fails to include some of the funniest bits of of the false names the guy gave was his brother's name who was already locked up. Probably most hilarious is the fact that he was attempting to give false names when his name was clearly tattooed on his hand and neck (can't see in the picture) Derp!
