He might have gotten away with it, but for those darn sneakers. An El Paso man running from the law at a carnival was captured when police say they spotted David Caro's sneakers poking out beneath a pile of stuffed teddy bears.

Authorities say Caro was trying to hide after ditching his car during a traffic stop Thursday. Police say Caro had swerved into the path of a motorcycle officer to avoid being pulled over.

Once inside the carnival, police saw Caro's shoes in the stuffed teddy bear pile and arrested him. He was charged with evading arrest and aggravated assault against a public servant.

It was not immediately clear if Caro had a lawyer.
