Three law enforcement agencies were searching for this man as he was tucked away in someone's chimney.

This Indiana man was pretty popular according to WHAS,

Officers from the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office, Evansville Police Department and Indiana State Police were searching Thursday for 29-year-old Cody Methanial Sargent to serve a warrant to revoke his probation, the sheriff’s office said.

Apparently, the suspect climbed up a fireplace and got about three quarters of the way up the chimney when he realized he was trapped.  If there is a God, he will use the Santa Claus defense in court when he's asked about resisting arrest.

Here's how I see this going down.  Cody Sargent says, "No Your Honour.  I wasn't hiding from police.  I was performing a scientific experiment to figure out just how Santa Claus can eat whatever he wants and still get up and down every chimney in the world."

There's no word on if the suspect figured out Santa's secret.  Sargent is currently being held in jail without bond for violating his probation in drug-related convictions.
