    I can't give you the equivalent idiomatic expression, but I can tell you what it means:

    "to get in trouble" or "to get into an uncomfortable, risky, or threatening situation."

    If this is enough information for you to connect this with the equivalent expression, I would be interested to hear what it is in Spanish.
