U.S. Marshals snared a lion Wednesday and hauled him to jail.

OK, it wasn't a real lion, but a man wearing a furry costume: James Wagner, 39, of Canonsburg, Pa.

Wagner has been running from the law for more than two years, marshals say. He was wanted on charges of raping and impregnating a girl in Pennsylvania.

Marshals in Pennsylvania received a tip that Wagner was working at a cell phone store on Ohio 91 in Solon. They heard that his job there was to stand outside the store wearing a lion suit and luring people inside.

About 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, marshals drove to the store in a car. Sure enough, a lion enthusiastically waved them over.

The marshals jumped out of their car and struggled with the lion, until one marshal grabbed the tail.

Mission accomplished.

One cat in the bag.

("They hated it," Lagouranis recalled. "Like, 'Please! Just stop that voice!' ")
