ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) - A homeless man has been arrested after authorities say he fell through the ceiling of a Planned Parenthood office in central New York while trying to elude police.

The Ithaca Journal reports (https://ithacajr.nl/1Dz6URX ) that 32-year-old Adam Smith entered the Planned Parenthood in Ithaca around 9 a.m. Wednesday and asked employees if he could use the bathroom.

When the workers grew suspicious and knocked on the door, they found it was locked, so they called police.

Police say when officers arrived, Smith crawled into building’s duct work. Officials say he tried to crawl on a drop ceiling, but fell through and landed in a hallway. He was then taken into custody.

Officials say Adam was charged with criminal mischief and arson for trying to start a fire in the bathroom. It couldn’t be determined if he has a lawyer.
