Man Arrested Hiding Under Spa Cover

Dont Hide In A Hot Tub.

With the hot tub cover on, there is only a small air space above the water, which can quickly fill with gasses. Plus, it’s very dark and disorienting, like an isolation chamber.

From the Associated Press:

In ALMENA TOWNSHIP, Michigan,  police captured a runaway suspect trying to hide in a backyard hot tub in southwestern Michigan following a more than 100 mph chase.

The Van Buren County sheriff’s department says one of its deputies stopped a pickup truck early Wednesday for expired tags, but the driver took off. The department says the driver lost control and the pickup overturned in Almena Township, west of Kalamazoo. The driver fled on foot.

The department says a Kalamazoo police dog tracked the man and he was found hiding in a hot tub with a cover over it. The 28-year-old man was arrested on charges including fleeing police, resisting arrest, driving with a suspended license and operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs.

Don’t hide under a spa cover! The police already know that trick. Plus, it can be very dangerous in a spa filled with water.
