Breaking something by accident and then either hiding the evidence or fleeing the scene.
I accidentally broke one of my wife's really nice dishes last night. Fortunately, we had a dinner party going on so I just pulled a break n ditch and denied I knew anything about it.
My friend was downtown the other night and leaned too hard into a plate glass window on Main Street and it busted on her! She went for a break n ditch. Who could blame her, she works there!
