A British thief's getaway was foiled Saturday when he urinated on a wasps' nest and the anger insects stuck it to him.

Jamie Brown, 29, was on run after breaking into a Leeds, Yorkshire, store and making off with a fish tank, the Halifax Courier reported.

While hiding in some bushes Brown felt the need to relieve himself and made a direct hit on a wasps' nest, unleashing a stinging attack.

The Courier reported that a sweating and crying Brown was seen by police.

He told cops he was running home after being stung several times following a visit with his aunt. Police found a pair of gloves and the fish tank nearby.

Brown spent six hours in hospital before being released and sent to court, where he pleaded guilty to theft and jailed for 24 weeks.
