An inmate in Brazil recently learned the hard way that trying to break out of jail probably wasn’t the smartest idea he’d ever had.
The unnamed man, reportedly detained in the Balneário Piçarras jail in Santa Catarina for stealing, tried to squeeze through the small food hatch in his cell, according to the New York Post.
He probably thought his plan was working when his head and shoulders made it through the hatch, but the thrill was short-lived as his lower body had other plans.

The inmate’s hips, clad in a pair of suspicious purple underwear, were too wide to make it through the 11-inch wide gap, and he found himself stuck in the hatch, unable to get in or out.
When the guards found him, the inmate burst into tears, as firefighters had to come cut him free from his humiliating situation. Officials first poured oil on the man in an attempt to free him from his predicament, but when that didn’t work, they had to use power tools.
The 40-year-old robbery suspect had been taken into custody late Monday after being “caught red-handed” in Santa Catarina, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

According to police, he was stuck for about a half hour and was later transferred to a different cell.
