Authorities rescue half-naked man hanging from basketball hoop (VIDEO)

SEATTLE --  Police and fire crews were able to use a ladder to rescue a half-naked man hanging upside down by his foot from a basketball hoop at Cal Anderson Park in Seattle.

Police were called to the park on Capitol Hill around 6:30p.m. Friday to reports of a shirtless man with a hammer hanging from the hoop.

After a few minutes of wildly gesticulating, twirling and kicking the man stopped long enough for the rescuers to get a hold of him and dislodge his foot from where it was stuck.

Police said the unidentified man had been arrested.
