It seemed like a foolproof plan. But like many brilliantly conceived capers, it failed anyway. Police in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania found a man walking into a busy street. They talked to him and discovered that he was drunk. They also pointed out that he had stepped in dog poop on the sidewalk.
This is when the suspect developed a cunning plan: if he was covered in dog poop, they police wouldn't be able to arrest him! The Times-Leader reports:
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.
