When you try your best, but you don’t succeed… 

A 29-year-old woman fell through the ceiling of a convenience store in Alberta, Canada while she was attempting to evade police. The victim of gravity had entered the King Street Reddi Mart with a 28-year-old man who was trying to use a stolen credit card. 

The woman, who learned that what goes up must come down, was arrested without further incident. Her male companion was tasered and arrested. They have been charged with multiple counts, including using a stolen credit card, resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer, attempting to disarm a police officer, and resisting arrest from someone aiding the police officer.

While the woman may have been a champion at hide-and-seek during her early years, it seems that she needs to brush up on her technique.


In the video, it appears that the man pushes the woman, who is assumed to be his girlfriend, into the police officer in an attempt to escape. As one Twitter user puts it, this story has it all.


Another user claims it to be a true masterpiece of silent cinema.


Whoever edited this footage together, future generations may consider this your magnum opus.

And, because this is the internet, someone has already paired the footage with the ever classic “Yakety Sax.”
