Authorities in Florida know Jason Daniel Wayo as the “South Gate Burglar,” but they could start calling him the “Underpants Burglar” after his arrest over the weekend.
On Saturday, Fox 13 cameras caught Wayo, 34, as he was handcuffed and marched out of a residence by Sarasota County Sheriff’s deputies following a crime spree that ended in a three-hour standoff.
Authorities said that Wayo’s day started with crimes in Manatee County. Then he traveled down Long Boat Key and committed more crimes in the Sarasota City area.
“He also stole another vehicle and traveled South down here into the Venice area,” Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight explained. “He became engaged in a confrontation with a citizen, there was at that time gunshots fired.”
Wayo was found hiding in the closet of a home where at least two people were injured.
“One victim was shot in the hand; another man was pistol whipped who came to the aid of his neighbor,” Sarasota County Sheriff Office Spokeswoman Wendy Rose told Fox 13. “That’s where we believe the suspect was injured as well.”
Although Wayo was shot in the arm, apparently by a neighbor, he stole another car and was chased by law enforcement.
The alleged criminal then crashed the third vehicle and took refuge inside a Venice home, where he was eventually nabbed wearing no pants.
Authorities said that Wayo had been arrested 14 times since 1993 for crimes including burglary, aggravated assault and dealing in stolen property.

Trump’s ‘white superiority complex’ undermines the rule of law in America: black former Republican
Gregory Cheadle, a black former Republican who attended a Trump rally in 2016 and was infamously praised by then-candidate Donald Trump as “my African American," appeared on MSNBC on Monday to explain why he can no longer support the GOP.
Cheadle said that he doesn't believe the president flat-out hates black people like former KKK leader David Duke, but he does believe Trump has what he described as a "white superiority complex" that only makes minorities feel the system is rigged against them.
Meghan McCain roasts Laura Ingraham for fat-shaming her: ‘I’m on The View — and you’re not’
Meghan McCain mocked former Fox News colleague Laura Ingraham after the conservative broadcaster shamed her as too fat for television.
"The View" panelists discussed a viral video of "Late Late Show" host James Corden calling out HBO's Bill Maher for shaming overweight people, and McCain discussed her own struggles with weight.
"I want to say if I weren't fat-shamed, I wouldn't have a career," McCain said. "Laura Ingraham said I was too plus-sized to have a career. Shout out, Laura -- I'm on 'The View' and you're not."
The audience cheered her slam on Ingraham, and she said that same dynamic had worked at the start of her tenure on the talk show.
Meghan McCain gets fact-checked on new Kavanaugh accuser — and asks if Clarence Thomas got impeached
"The View" host Whoopi Goldberg had to fact-check Meghan McCain's description of a New York Times correction in a bombshell new report about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The newspaper reported that the FBI failed to interview former Yale classmates about sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh during the confirmation process last fall, and the authors of a new book found a new accuser.
McCain pointed to an editor's note appended to the story that she believes casts doubt on the new reporting, but Goldberg asked her to clean up some of the claims she made.
