A Pennsylvania man hoping to evade police capture decided to use humanity’s collective disgust of dog poop to his advantage. Instead of turning himself in to police, 45-year-old Maurice Franklin took a more creative route.

Police attempted to arrest Franklin after he walked into traffic and appeared intoxicated. When they approached him and tried to cuff him, Franklin fell on the ground and began rolling around in dog poop. According to police, “Franklin told them they could not arrest him because he was covered in feces.”

He was arrested anyway.
