A man in an LA suburb was caught rambling, naked, and screaming that people were trying to kill him. But that wasn’t the end of the man’s 99 problems — at least.
The naked man was also arrested on burglary charges. Police said he tried to steal items from another Ladera Heights home before he fled, and then tried to hide out in a neighbor’s chimney — before getting stuck.
“They had me running around buck naked,” the man screamed as he was taken into custody.
“They asked if anybody had a towel. Somebody tossed a white towel onto the roof,” said witness Leslie Scraifer.
Once they had a towel, police and firefighters pulled the man out and wrapped him in it.
“Oh my God. I was shocked I couldn’t believe it,” said Shraifer.
Firefighters and sheriff’s deputies worked on getting the naked suspect freed. But he refused to go quietly.
“Don’t kill me. Y’all don’t let these folks kill me man,” he yelled as he was led off in handcuffs. And the borrowed towel.
