A young Frenchman was left seriously injured when he fell from the third story balcony at his home in eastern France this week.
He had invited his friends round to his house in the town of Colmar, eastern France to celebrate France's national day on July 14th.
According to reports in the French media the man was stood on his balcony at around 2am when he spotted a police car coming down the street.
He leaned back preparing to unleash a volley of phlegm onto the cops below, but as he lurched forward he went over the balcony railings and fell, luckily landing in some bushes.
He was rushed to hospital suffering from a serious head injury and multiple fractures.
In another strange twist, when police questioned the shocked friends up on the balcony, officers realized that one of them had been on the run for several months.
He was arrested and hauled off to prison.
