As situations go this is one of the weirder ones.
Twelve policemen were needed to free a shirtless man wielding a hammer who had somehow managed to get stuck in a basketball hoop.
The bizarre incident happened on 1 May in Seattle.
Shirtless man removed from Cal Anderson basketball hoop. He may be arrested for property destruction, or at least goal-tending. #MayDaySea— Seattle Police Dept. (@SeattlePD) May 2, 2015
