The man was rambling and 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.
CBS2/KCAL9’s Greg Mills spoke to shocked neighbors about their naked visitor.
Once they had a towel, police and fire pulled the man out and wrapped him in it. “Oh my God. I was shocked I couldn’t believe it,” said Shraifer.
She and boyfriend Ace Antonio-Hall were headed to church when they said they heard choppers overhead.
