[August 31, 2010]  NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- A would-be burglar who tried to break into a South Carolina restaurant found himself in a tight and a greasy situation.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reported a man tried to break into a North Charleston restaurant by climbing down a grease vent. He got stuck and had to wait almost seven hours until he could be freed.

North Charleston Police said the man was discovered shortly before 5 a.m. Monday when an employee heard someone calling for help. Police arrived to find a foot dangling in a vent above a stove.

Kevin Michael Harley of North Charleston was charged with second-degree burglary. It could not immediately be determined if the 23-year-old Harley had an attorney.
