Naked Honolulu bloke rescued from garbage chute

'Had been drinking heavily'

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Honolulu firefighters yesterday extracted a naked man from a rubbish chute after he unsuccessfully attempted to evade cops by taking the fast route out of a Waikiki apartment building.

Police responded to a 4am 911 call from a resident on the seventh floor who told them his roommate "had been drinking heavily, physically assaulted him and threatened him with a knife".

When officers rolled up, the perp legged it and flung himself down the chute. However, he lost his shorts during the descent and accumulated rubbish on the third floor thwarted his escape.

Once removed from the chute, the man refused medical treatment and was cuffed on "first-degree terroristic threatening charges". ®
