A New York man who jumped from a window trying to evade police who were executing a search warrant in Vermont on Wednesday morning became stuck when his pants got caught on a piece of the building.

On Wednesday morning, Burlington Police said they were assisting the U.S. Marshal Service with the execution of a search warrant on South Willard St. in connection with an ongoing investigation. As they were executing the warrant, a 25-year-old Brooklyn, New York, man jumped from a second story window. As he jumped, his pants became caught on a piece of the building and he got stuck, suspended by his pants outside the apartment window. He was helped down by members of the Burlington Fire Department.

The man was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries. Police said it isn't clear what prompted him to jump from the window. He has not been charged with any crime at this time and was released.

During the execution of the warrant, Alonzo Jones, 32, also of Brooklyn, New York, was witnessed throwing crack cocaine out a window of the apartment. He was taken into custody and scheduled to appear in court later on Wednesday.

Detectives from the Burlington Police Department have taken over the drug investigation related to this incident.
