Wanted Felon Brought Down By Falling Pants
(CBS Seattle) — It turns out it didn’t take much to take down a convicted felon; he was done in by his own baggy pants.
Akeem Henderson was wanted on an outstanding warrant for fleeing a traffic stop, according to KOMO News.
Last weekend, a Washington State Department of Corrections officer saw Henderson go into a home in the 800 block of South Cushman Avenue in Tacoma. Henderson was handcuffed and while he was being searched, he got away from officers and started running.
According to KOMO, Henderson was running down an alley when his pants fell down and tripped him. He fell down, giving officers time to catch up to him. Charging documents report that Henderson bragged about selling $1,000 in drugs that day and was going to use that money to post bail. The 29-year-old also told officer he’d tossed three grams of heroin as he was running away. He then told officers he had a gun and should have shot them, then reportedly threatened to shoot the officers and beat them up when he was out of jail.
Henderson was charged Monday with harassment, obstructing an officer, escape, unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.
