    BROCKTON, Mass., June 28 (UPI) -- Police in Massachusetts said an alleged burglar was foiled when his head became stuck under a garage door for several hours.

    Brockton police said an employee at the local Rent-A-Center showed up for work around 9 a.m. Tuesday and discovered Manuel Hernandez, 54, with his head stuck between the garage door and the ground, WHDH-TV, Boston, reported Thursday.

    "Obviously the employee was surprised and certain that opening up in the morning was the last thing that he expected to see and he immediately called police," Detective Lt. Paul Bonanca said.

    Investigators said Hernandez, who unsuccessfully tried to convince the employee he was at the business for a legitimate purpose, used a metal bed post to try to pry the back garage door open and managed to lift it about 7 or 8 inches before trying to shimmy under. Police said the door fell as Hernandez was trying to pass underneath and his head was pinned to the ground.

    Hernandez, who was taken to a hospital to receive treatment for a bruise on his head, will face charges of breaking and entering and malicious damage to property, police said.

    He fits right in with the two yahoos that were arrested yesterday because one of them butt-dialed 911 while the two discussed stealing copper. Didn't take long for them to receive a visit from a few local LEOs!

    Ya know, I hear the 'butt dial' thing on the tube. First, what's a cell phone doing in a person back pocket when they sit down? Second, I would think they have a Single button programmed to dial 911? Why? They're BG's. Good grief. :confused:

    most cell phones, if you hold the #1 more than 3 seconds , automatically dial 911. one yahoo i used to know would sleep with his phone and call the cops all the time. not what you think, he used it for his alarm clock. still is an idiot.

    The guy with the head stuck in the door missed the obvious excuse to get him off:

    he was just checking out Highboy's purple toenails!
