Self Arrest

Being arrested is bad enough, but having to call the police yourself is just adding insult to injury...if only all crimes could solve themselves like this one...

Police in Knoxville, Tenn., say a man has been arrested for burglary after he phoned authorities and told them he was stuck in a museum ventilation shaft.

Knoxville police said Anthony Smith, 25, called 911 shortly before 4:30 a.m. and told the dispatcher he was wedged in the ventilation system at the Knoxville Museum of Art.

Police and firefighters arrived at the museum to find Smith wedged 40 feet down a ventilator shaft but investigators said they are unsure of how he could have gotten onto the building's roof.

Authorities said nothing was disturbed inside the museum. However, Smith was arrested on the burglary charge after being extracted from the tight space.
