A man called Toronto Police this morning and asked to be arrested so he could watch today's big Blue Jays game in jail.

The Jays are playing the Texas Rangers in the fifth and final game of their playoff series. The winner moves on to the division championship.

Police went to the scene and and "the man was gone when police arrived," Constable Jenifferjit Sidhu of Toronto Police told BuzzFeed Canada.

Even if he had been there, he would have been out of luck.

"The funniest part is when your'e arrested there are no televisions in the holding station," Sidhu said.

So we can assume this was not a seasoned criminal, yes?

"Correct," she said.
