Accused Thief Re-Enacts Snoop Dogg Song -- In His Pants

Posted By on Thu, Apr 8, 2010 at 12:01 AM

A man who wandered into the Outer Mission Safeway late Tuesday night is accused of turning his pants into a virtual mini-bar of the sort that washes a wave of nostalgic joy over anyone who came of age in the 1990s.

At 10:30 p.m., the store guard observed a man make a beeline for the liquor aisle, and shove a bottle of gin down his pant leg. He then waddled to a different section of the store and slipped a bottle of orange juice into his other pant leg. Deviating from Snoop Dogg's seminal 1994 ode to Seagrams, Tanqueray, and intoxication, "Gin and Juice," the man then managed to stuff a bag of chips down his trousers, too.

Somehow, the guard caught up with the suspect. According to the San

Francisco Police Department, Gin and Juice Pants had been arrested

twice on Monday alone for shoving liquor down his pants at the very

same Safeway, and had been banished from the store.

To top it off, while the suspect may have had his mind on his money and his money on his mind, he had no cash on his person. He was booked -- yet again -- for burglary.

As for what song he'll re-create in his next robbery attempt -- he's taking requests.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
