A drunk in Maine was arrested after he unsuccessfully tried to hide from police by hiding himself under a blanket.
After creating a disturbance at an Inn in Maine, police were called out to remove the drunken man. When the police showed up, the man had sat in a chair and draped a blanket over himself to hide from the cops.
Yeah, he was easy enough to spot.
Officers responded around 9:30 p.m. Sunday to the Admiral Ocean Inn in Belfast for a report of a disturbance caused by a drunken man identified as Philip Dulude, the Belfast Police Department said.
Police removed Dulude from the property and told him not to return or else he'd be arrested.
When police performed a sweep of the parking lot around 12:40 a.m., police said they found someone hiding in a chair with a blanket draped over themselves.
Police pulled the blanket off to reveal Dulude hiding underneath it, according to authorities.
"Here at Belfast Police Department, we have seen some crafty ways of hiding from the police," the department wrote on Facebook. "This unfortunately is not one of them."
Dulude deserves to be arrested just for this lazy attempt at hiding. It's one thing for our toddlers to do it, but you usually grow out of hiding in plain sight by age 4.
The man was arrested for the lamer charges of trespassing and bail violations, however.
He probably would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for those pesky kids and their dog!!
