Reporter splits his pants on live TV

NC Reporter Accidentally Splits Pants on Live TV

WXII traffic reporter Chris Lea is the athletic type (he's a professional wrestler), but his attempt at cheerleading left him with a pair of split pants.

During a "Lanie's Backyard BBQ" segment Wednesday on WXII 12 News in Winston-Salem, N.C., Chris challenged a local high school cheerleader to do a toe touch.

The cheerleader performed flawlessly. When Chris tried the same move -- despite a friendly warning from meteorologist Lanie Pope -- things didn't go so well.

The loud "pop" could be audibly heard, sending Chris scurrying away and causing Lanie to laugh hysterically. The video has already been viewed thousands of times, and we hope Chris' ego isn't too bruised. As for the pants? Well, he'll need to go shopping before his next segment.

This isn't the first time a reporter has been in an unexpected situation this week. On June 16th, Meteorologist Danielle Dozier was on live TV when an earthquake struck.

Her calm reaction was so impressive, it quickly went viral. Watch it unfold here:

Nice try at trying to get something started, but it didn't work.

OK, Today the fair and balanced news service reported that one of the Lame Stream Liberal "news" reporters exposed himself on TV.

Once when I was in the Army I went to a neighboring post about 10 miles away on business. While there, I decided to go to the Officers Club for lunch. As I stepped out of my car, the seam in the back of my pants let go and split right down the middle.

Luckily there was no one standing around, so I quickly ducked into the Club. I knew the secretary in the office, so I asked her if there was a sewing kit around but she said there wasn't. Then I spied a stapler on her desk, so I went into the men's room, took off my pants and stapled the seam together with a row of staples; that held long enough to get through lunch and back to my home post.

What the heck video were you watching? I say his underwear, they were light green. NOW it seems you're the one who needs glasses not me!

Regardless of splitting pants, his athletic split was fast and smooth! Impressive!

we have all seen something like this in our lives but he was a great sport about it. And if anything he is probably more popular than he was before. there are too many stuffed shirts on television today so station should buy him a new pair of pants for his efforts and the ladies at the station are going to have a great reason for coming to work for a while.

That is why you should try something off camera before doing it on camera.

He was probably trying to out class Michael Jordans add by showing off his "HAINES" undershorts.
