Ill-gotten bottle bites man

A man suspected of being a thief at an Ipis de Guadalupe store slipped and fell on the pocket that contained a small bottle of alcohol. The man suffered serious injuries when the bottle, believed to have been stolen, broke and embedded itself in his leg, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.

The bottle was one of those small ones of some 365 millimeters known as a pachita in Spanish.

The man had been confronted by a guard, which may have contributed to his fall, said judicial agents.
