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.

Chief Justice Roberts admonishes lawyers at Senate impeachment trial
Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court John Roberts made his first major intervention in President Donald Trump's impeachment trial shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday morning.
After House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) finished his closing arguments on why former National Security Advisor John Bolton should testify, the White House team went on the attack. Yelling and demanding apologies, the president's team was more animated than they'd been all night. Roberts then admonished the House and White House on their language.
Claiming the Senate is the "world's greatest deliberative body" -- despite what he had witnessed during 12 hours of the impeachment trial -- Roberts complained about language that was "not conducive to civil discourse."
White House lawyers begin yelling at Democrats during late-night impeachment trial — after Trump starts tweeting
President Donald Trump woke up and began tweeting around midnight EST during the Senate impeachment trial over the amendments over the rules. That's when a noticeable thing changed on the Senate floor: Trump's team started yelling.
Nearing 1 a.m. EST Tuesday morning while the president was tweeting about impeachment, his team began attacking Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) personally. They called him a liar and accused him of attacking the president and demanded an apology. After nearly 12 hours this was the first time the White House got even remotely animated after a dull defense of the president.
Here is the self-inflicted blunder Mitch McConnell made that destroyed his entire case: ex-DOJ official
The former chief of the criminal fraud section at the Department of Justice broke down a mistake made by Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) late on Tuesday evening.
McConnell urged something known as "vote stacking" in which there would be a vote-a-rama sequence of vote after vote -- without any debate on the amendments.
Andrew Weissmann, who played a management role in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, explained how McConnell undermined his own argument.
"I think Mitch McConnell may have made a bit of a miscalculation there because what he is really saying -- 'Can you stack these?' -- is it doesn't matter what you say, because we're going to vote against it," he explained.
