Honestly, it’s just as ridiculous as the picture. A 40-year-old Mexican man kept his 25-year-old girlfriend padlocked in her pants to keep her from cheating. After hours of having to use the restroom, the unidentified woman went to authorities in Veracruz to help her out… literally. While they helped, she claimed that this act wasn’t uncommon and that her boyfriend had been doing it for years. Check out the picture of her pants after the jump.

Police then arrested the man, only for the woman to decline pressing charges. And, after 12 years of locking his girl down, the man signed papers vowing to never do it again.
