Hiding from the cops gets you, well, no where ...
A search for an elusive criminal came to an unexpected end when the man crashed through a ceiling from his attic refuge and landed near police who had come to arrest him, officials said.
"Normally you have to crawl up there and root them out," said Capt. Tommy Rabon, head of the Moultrie Police Department's Criminal Investigations Division. "But he came out on his own — the hard way."
Officers had gone to a home Wednesday to arrest Danny Butts, 21, for a probation violation. They became suspicious when the brightly lit interior suddenly went dark.
An occupant said Butts was not there, but officers spotted debris below an attic entrance. While they continued to question the woman, Butts fell through the ceiling onto a bedroom floor.
