Cleveland Man Sheds Pants While Trying to Escape 111th Arrest

Ryllie Danylko, Cleveland, May 7, 2015

A Cleveland man who was arrested for the 111th time on Tuesday shed his pants while fleeing from South Euclid police, according to an arrest report.

Nathaniel Ferguson, 49, faces theft charges after he reportedly stole about $52 of toothpaste from Walgreens on Mayfield Road. Lorenzo Turner, a 53-year-old Cleveland man, was also arrested after police said he gave Ferguson a ride to help him evade officers.

Police said Ferguson went into Walgreens about 2:15 p.m. and concealed items under his clothes. A store employee chased him as he ran through several backyards and climbed fences, reports show.


Police found a crack pipe and an open bottle of liquor in Turner’s car. {snip}

Ferguson is charged with theft, failing to comply with a police officer’s order and two traffic violations.


Ferguson has been in and out of Northeast Ohio jails since his first criminal conviction in 1984. Most of the charges he’s racked up are related to theft, robbery and drug possession.

  • Let them sag their pants, it makes it harder for them to run. The NYPD was easily able to catch Demetrius Blackwell because he was sagging.

    Now the curious thing is what he was stealing: Toothpaste. Either he has really bad teeth, or like Tide and baby formula, toothpaste is now becoming a hot new de facto ghetto barter medium of exchange.

    • Anglokraut

      If it was one of those name-brand whitening systems (write your own joke here), just one of those can run $50.

      • ozamataz

        Taking you up on that; He can whiten his teeth, but not his DNA.

      • Earl P. Holt III

        No reason to suspect he was gonna use it on his teefs…

    • Ron Cheaters

      Many years ago when I lived in Toronto, I’d go sit in my car during lunch breaks, there was a bona-fide crackhead that used to sit on the curb in front of my car who would devour a large dollar store bag of chips in 2-3 minutes. Then sit there and brush his teeth for 30-45 minutes, just scrubbing.
      Maybe the minty effect feels good when you’re on a crack binge?

    • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

      Baby formula is used to cut drugs, Tide is easy to sell at laundromats for quick cash…but toothpaste? I dunno. Maybe there’s some way to smoke it or get high on it. Finding new ways to get high seems to be the only ingenuity these people have.

      • ozamataz

        They ferment their own excrement to get high, what won’t they try?

    • belajadevotchka2

      These “people” can fence anything. Back in the 90s there were little corner “variety” stores in the ghetto that sold different crap every day. The owners of these stores were assorted dusky no English speaking boat people type beneficiaries of minority immigrant small business grants and no interest loans from the government. It was common knowledge that these stores resold anything and everything they could buy from crackheads that would shoplift it. They bought crap for 1/4 of the ticket price and sold it for half the sticker price, so for then it is quite profitable. These are also the same stores that let them use their EBT cards to buy $10 worth of cheap liquor or cigarettes for $20 worth or food stamps.

    So, I guess they don’t have a 3-strikes law in Ohio. How many times does a negro have to be arrested before they throw away the key? Apparently this guy wants to do hard time.

    This is why I advocate deportation and stripping them of citizenship. Let him run amok in Liberia or some other African non-racist paradise. We’ve spent enough money on him already.

    • IstvanIN

      Even the Africans don’t want them.

      • Earl P. Holt III

        Their LEADERS DO…!!!

    • InAFreeCountry

      If he did hard time, he’d probably eat better and get off that crack. Old negro looks skinny as a rail.

      • I am the same age as he is, and pass for late-twenties. Drugs really are bad for folks.

        • Tim_in_Indiana

          He has very few lines on his face, and virtually no grey hair (okay, not a lot of hair at all). I just don’t think he was very good looking to begin with.

          • Good point. It is hard to measure looks in a Negro. But following what Michael Christopher Scott said, I am older than him and look way younger.

        • Earl P. Holt III

          Dat crack fries de noggin’ of de brane…

    • If the convictions were all misdemeanors (like theft under $500), the “Three Strikes” laws do not typically apply.

      • LexiconD1

        You’d thinks some prosecutor would have pinned a ‘habitual criminal charges’ on him. It wouldn’t even be hard to prove.

  • Oil Can Harry

    His lawyer needs to warn him that he could get a life sentence the next time he’s arrested under Cleveland’s tough “112 strikes and you’re out” law.

    • But doesn’t everyone deserve a 112th chance?

      • Canadian Friend

        We white priviledged racists only gave him 111 chances… How cruel of us!

        • Kenner

          We just can’t grasp dey culcha!

    • JohnEngelman

      laughing out loud

    • HA HA HA!!! I see, we have a comedian here!

    South Euclid is another Cleveland suburb that the darkies are destroying thanks to Section 8 and government backed loans. It’s not quite done yet, but give it another five years.

    • Anglokraut

      Oh, my brother just bought a house in our old hometown in the southwest suburbs; the city cranked up the property taxes, and really drove out the human garbage.

      • Tarczan

        Strongsville? What town?

        • Spikeygrrl


        • Anglokraut

          North Ridgeville. I didn’t think the area would ever get its act together, but some new blood in local politics has really gotten results. I hope to visit my brother this summer and perhaps swing by city hall to find out how they plan to keep things nice.

          • Tarczan

            North Ridgeville is pretty far from Cleveland, but they had a bad incident a couple of years ago about a white kid beaten by darkies. I didn’t realize they raised taxes. the problem I think they have is lower cost housing that is susceptable to Section 8 rentals. When that happens, it’s over.

          • Lord Sandwich

            I’m next door to NR in Lorain County, hood central. Still waiting for Cleveland to be the next contestant in the fall of civilization.

          • Tarczan

            I’m in Strongsville. Darkies are creeping in, but plenty of Musloids, Doctors and such. I feel very safe, however. I’m too old to move. I’d hate to be stuck in Parma or Euclid. I know a young couple that bought a house in Euclid for $100k about ten years ago. Their kids couldn’t take the blacks in the schools and they finally sold it for $20k. A huge diversity tax.

          • Alexandra1973

            I’m near the Wayne/Medina county line myself. Very few blacks here, and thankfully the race traitor next door is moving out and taking Leroy with her.

          • Tarczan

            Who is Leroy?

          • Alexandra1973

            Look what Obozo is doing to a country he doesn’t like! (Namely ours!)

            I know where Strongsville is, was in that area not too long ago. I’m in Wayne County myself.

            Well…these same neighbors have a couple of recliners sitting out on the lawn, one looks torn up, there’s a microwave sitting on another…and a rainstorm is starting to blow in….

            These apartments are being remodeled, there’s going to be new landscaping, management told us to more or less keep off the grass and those geniuses have this stuff sitting on it.

            She drives a battered SUV. Typical of these women to tote around their, er, accessories. And typically they’re overweight, wear tank tops and shorts that really bring that out, and dye their hair blond. She’s one of those.

          • Tarczan

            I really like Holems and southern Wayne county. I used to go there and drive around in my slumlord days to decompress. I really like the Amish, I know there are those critical of them but Holmes County is so scenic and peaceful. Spend a Saturday afternoon in East Cleveland and the little Amish kids seem like angels. I still try to do a bike ride there every year(pedal).

          • Lord Sandwich

            We get around the public schools here via the “Ed Choice” program. Lorain Schools are so under-performing that we get a State-funded voucher to send our daughter to a good private school just blocks from our house. It’s doesn’t solve everything. But it does solve the school dilemma. We should probably move, but the economy has us just trying to hold on to what we’ve got. It’s a shame to allow bantus to drive us from our homes, but we have little recourse when battling a protected class.

  • MekongDelta69

    Is there a one hundred and twelfth-strike law for blacks?!

    [I wonder how much time this miscreant has done? A year? A month? A week? A day? An hour? A minute? A second? Zip, zero, nada?]

  • dd121

    This is pure racism. The young man, with extremely high potential, was merely entering in the admissions office of a local university, trying to apply to their graduate program in law enforcement. /sarc

    …he reportedly stole about $52 of toothpaste from Walgreens

    If you’ve been to a chain drug store you may have noticed that some products now come with stickers that say ‘this product is for sale at Walgreens only’.

    What’s going on is those corner stores in the bad part of town run by ‘immigrants’ buy these items for resale in their own stores. We had a group of Arab stores caught doing this a few years ago.

    • archer

      $52 of stolen toothpaste would net him how much when he sold it?

      • Ron Cheaters

        Depends if that’s at cost, or retail value. Police usually go by retail value, so maybe it was worth $25-$30

      • ElComadreja

        Probably enough for a bag of crack and a 40 ouncer.

    • Those Arabs also love buying untaxed tobacco on Indian reservations to resell in their stores. Unfortunately for them, this particular racket is instantly federal, so I met a few of those guys when I was locked up.

      As an aside, isn’t Walgreens notorious among shoplifters for having good security?

  • Eagle1212

    Criminals would do anything they can to escape the police and make themselves look innocent as they think they are.

  • John Smith

    Bet you can see his pearly smile in the dark, if little else. Maybe he’ll learn his lesson the 111th time – even stupid dogs will learn after that many repetitions.

    • Do dogs even get that many chances?

      • John Smith

        I believe many get put to sleep by then.

      • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

        Depends on how many white liberals take up the case.

  • De Doc

    Given his choice item in the robbery, he naturally must be concerned for his teeth. All three of them.

    • Lexonaut

      “Given his choice item in the robbery, he naturally must be concerned for his teeth. All three of them.”

      Smart man. He stole a lifetime supply.

  • Irishgirl

    A 49-year-old man still wearing sagging pants? And in the black market toothpaste business. Probably hanging out in a dark alley saying, “Hey buddy, do you want to buy some Colgate?”

    • InAFreeCountry

      Maybe it’s for after he prostitutes his mouth for crack money.

  • Phoenixian Westernia

    His mama and 111 potential fathers.

  • Sam

    Toothpaste? The poor guy just wanted a whiter smile.

    • Hilis Hatki

      Do they use it as a skin whitener ?

    • Katherine McChesney

      Maybe it would enhance his fake gold grill.

    • Lexonaut

      “[$52 worth of] toothpaste?”

      Maybe he’s the business manager for the wolf in Little Red Riding Hood.

  • how about this

    If not for the White man’s oppressive concepts of property, his enthusiasm for oral hygiene could have become the basis of a lucrative career!

  • Druggies steal very weird things. A meth-head I used to know once stole about 20 pounds of steel washers from me. Maybe he thought they were money. A friend once had his cheap charcoal grill stolen, with the coals still burning and the meat still cooking. The thieves later brought the grill back after eating the steaks, and tried to sell it to him.

    • Lexonaut

      “Maybe he thought [the steel washers] were money.”

      I hear that in interior Papua New Guinea they are. He’s probably retired to a life of luxury after stealing an ocean going yacht to get him there.

      • The ex-TSA agent who stole the washers is now eight and a half years into a life sentence for raping children. That also appears to seem like a good idea to folks who are messed up on drugs. He just got denied parole (again) last week, and doesn’t get another parole hearing until May 2016. Since he had been eligible for those every six months, I suspect he stole something in prison, so he’s now back to once a year.

        He actually skated on the child-molestation charge, receiving a deferred sentence, and continued working as a sex-offender felon as a TSA passenger screener for an entire year afterward. He probably quite enjoyed strip-searching little Johnny and Jane. The critter finally violated his deferral when he was caught at a drug house with a .45″, a Tech-9, $500 in cash and $9000 worth of meth. He pleaded guilty to the gun charges in late 2006, which violated his deferral and his mandatory release date is December 31, 8888. You can look up Robert Rowe on the Colorado State Department of Corrections website.

        I am surprised that the feds didn’t pick up the gun charges.

        I was going to use those washers to sew them onto a heavy, quilted coat as a suit of ringmail for Medieval battle re-enactment.

        • Tarczan

          That’s quite a social circle you have there, Mike. Since I sold my ghetto stuff my life is much blander.

        • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

          I hope they kill him in prison. Nothing worse than a child molester.

          • I hope they don’t. He messed up his life so horrifically that I can’t hate him anymore. He was a sweet guy back in the day, the sort who would drive across town to help someone move. I think it is completely terrible. I miss the original version of him.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            I can understand that, but if he is a child molester, he deserves death, no matter the circumstances. Please don’t tell me he raped a little child, it’s bad enough if it’s rape no matter the age but a little kid is the absolute worst.

        • John Smith

          A brigandine coat might be a good idea just for regular winter wear.

  • Hilis Hatki

    He’s the Mr. Haney of crime.

  • Roninf9

    There is much to the argument that we should end the ‘War on Drugs’. The problem is that we will still have out of control reprobates like this cretin still running loose on the streets ruining the quality of life for decent people. And 111 arrests. This more is proof that our criminal “justice” system now functions to protect criminals, specifically non-white criminals, in the ruling class strategy the late Sam Francis dubbed Anarcho-tyranny.

    • refocus

      Drugs should be decriminalized and they should be sold in pharmaceutical grade at drug stores and places that sell alcohol.

      Those that cause auto accidents must be treated as severely as the wreck they have created.

      Those that cannot afford narcotics should be able to go to a reservation of sorts and get all the drugs they can consume for free. The government could even hook some of these cats up on a morphine drip if they want it. The price of entry is sterilization.

      Why not?

      It would be cheaper in the long run for the tax payer. The reason for crime, the stealing of assets to get narcotic money would disappear.

      • Roninf9

        The reservation plan is a good idea. The Indians were put on reservations because they were incompatible with Western, i.e. White civilization. They had their own ways and it would have be cruel and neigh impossible to force our ways on them. Most dopers, meth heads, and the like, as well a lot of bums and vagrants out of the streets are also incompatible with decent society. Put them on reservations and let them live according to their own ways. This would free up resources for those that want to clean themselves up. I would say that in addition to sterilization they should also be stripped of their citizenship.

  • Katherine McChesney

    He sho is ugly.

  • The man’s last name was Ferguson? Hmmm….I don’t think I will have too much trouble remembering that.

  • Lexonaut

    This guy isn’t really so bad. He’s a computer programmer turning his life around, and 111 is binary for decimal 7 so please stop exaggerating his arrest record.

  • Lexonaut

    “… shed his pants …”

    i must need new reading glasses. For a moment I thought it said “s**t his pants”.

  • Lexonaut

    “Ferguson is charged with theft, failing to comply with a police officer’s order and two traffic violations.”

    Let me make sure I understand this … He robs a Wal Mart. Then he jumps several fences while running from the police. So they charge him with two traffic violations? (Were these cops smoking rope?)

    Presumably one must have been for jaywalking. Can I please get a little help figuring out what the other traffic violation must have been?

  • LHathaway

    There but for the grace of God . . .

  • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

    He’s a little wall-eyed, isn’t he? Looks like a real class act!

    Or, if you prefer, he’s got “for-ya at-ya” eyes…one’s looking for ya, one’s looking at ya.
