A Florida man could not make a clean getaway after cops came to his house to arrest him — for trying to break into his neighbor’s home while wearing a mop on his head.

James Dizney Fields (Pictured) startled the guy next door by pounding loudly on his side door, then opening it a crack, while hiding his face behind the strings of the ragged floor-washing device. The victim says he locked the door because his kids were alarmed at the intrusion, but Fields kept trying, knocking on doors and windows, eventually throwing a burning newspaper into the garage.

According to a police report, Fields, who is hearing impaired, said the whole incident went down “because I was born a comedian … and I was short of an egg and needed eggs to make a cake.”

He’s been charged with disturbing the peace.
