BARTOW COUNTY, Ga. (WJW) — A suspected burglar called 911 for help after reportedly getting stuck under a pile of tires at a shop in Georgia.

Police say Nathaniel King, 30, broke into a tire shop in Bartow County on Sunday, WSB reports.

He entered the establishment through the back door not knowing that a "towering rack of tires" would be greeting him on the other side of the door.

When he walked into the store, the pile of tires fell on top of him, trapping him inside.

Authorities say King was desperate so he called 911. Here's a breakdown of the call, according to the news outlet:

Dispatcher: Bartow County 911. What’s the address of your emergency?

Suspect: I’m in Cartersville ... Cartersville, Georgia.

Dispatcher: Where are you at? Hello?

Suspect: Help me!

Dispatcher: OK, where are you, sir?

Suspect: I’m in a tire shop in Cartersville.

Dispatcher: OK, can you tell exactly what is wrong?

Dispatcher: Sir can you hear me?

Suspect: I think the tire rack is going to kill me.

An officer came to the shop and eventually got the tires off of him.

That's when King allegedly told police he was being chased, prompting him to enter the shop so he could get away from the alleged pursuer.

Police told WSB they have no evidence suggesting that King was actually being chased.

They say he wasn't hurt in the tire incident and is, however, currently being held in the county jail on criminal trespass charges.
