So they come to arrest you at 6:00, Bam, the door gets kicked in, there are cops with flashlights and shotguns, maybe a flash-bang grenade. Pretty disorienting. Amazing it is then, that a guy could have the presence of mind to say, "Wait, can I get my slippers before we go - no, not the shag ones, the Lion King ones."

Course, he going in for a double homicide. Maybe he's the kind of guy who looks for trouble.
