CSI: CANADA

The car was missing its front windshield. There was a hole in the back window, glass on the highway and an axe on the backseat.

...Lewis asked police why he had been pulled over. It was then, Judge Paul Scovil writes, that the officer noticed Lewis had his pants pulled down to his knees. "I believe I can take judicial notice that this is an unusual way to wear one's pants when operating a motor vehicle," Judge Scovil wrote.
