DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - R. Kelly can probably relate. Being trapped in a closet can be tough. Especially for days. But if you ever find yourself in that situation, just remember to at least try the handle. Once. At least once. 

Police officers in Daytona Beach arrested a man and a woman who claimed they were trapped in a closet at Daytona State College for two days. The couple told a local newspaper they were chased into the closet in the college's Marine and Environmental Science Center and became trapped when the door locked. It then took them two days to call 911 from a cellphone. No one knows why. What's even more peculiar is that they weren't trapped at all. The closet was not able to lock, so when officers arrived, they simply turned the handle and opened the door. Inside they found 31-year-old John Arwood and 25-year-old Amber Campbell. 

Whether or not the couple actually knew they could get out is up for debate, but they appeared to be committed to staying in the closet as officers also found human poop in the closet. They did not find any drugs, however according to the local paper, they did find copper scouring pads, which are sometimes used to smoke crack. 

The two face trespassing charges and Campbell is also accused of violating her parole.
