Fight Against Maturity

Crime tip: Don’t wear your cool baggy pants.

Casinos have been operating in Pennsylvania for a few years, but it wasn’t until gambling came to Philadelphia that a patron leaving with a wad of cash caught the eye of some enterprising – and ultimately bumbling – criminals.

At least three men followed a man who had won about $2,000 at the SugarHouse Casino all the way to his home in New Jersey on Saturday morning, authorities said.

Two of the men then jumped the 26-year-old, cracking him in the skull with a handgun. The attackers got nothing for their effort, partly because the victim wrestled one to the ground and another “tripped over his baggy pants” and fell down, according to Cinnaminson police.
