Police: Man tried to force pants swap

Police in Sweden said a 26-year-old man refused entry to a bar for wearing sweatpants allegedly knocked a man to the ground and tried to steal his jeans.

Investigators said a bouncer at a Helsingborg pub told the sweatpants-wearing man he could not enter the bar because of his clothing, leading him to attack another man and remove his pants, The Local reported Friday.

A passing police unit came upon the men while they were both without pants.

We've just swapped trousers, the alleged attacker was quoted as telling the officers.

The man on the ground told a different story and was backed up by the bouncer.

Police said the sweatpants man put his own pants back on and was arrested on a theft charge.
