Hammer-wielding man found stuck in basketball hoop in Washington

SEATTLE, WA (KABC) -- A shirtless man climbed up a basketball hoop at Cal Anderson Park in Seattle and somehow managed to get his foot stuck in the chain netting.

Nearly a dozen cops looked on as he tried to free himself but failed, at times dangling upside down just by his foot.

Eventually, two firefighters arrived with a ladder and were able to cut down the net and free the man.

Seattle police say the suspect may be arrested.

It's not known how the man ended up in this predicament in the first place.
