Police Find Naked Man Hanging From Ceiling
DARLINGTON, S.C. - Police responding to an alarm at a cash advance business found a naked man hanging from the ceiling early Thursday morning.
An officer answering the alarm noticed tiles, insulation, wires and metal braces hanging from the roof and on the floor of the Check 'n Go, Darlington Police Lt. Danny Watson said.
A naked man with scrapes all over his body then dropped from the ceiling and tried to open the front door and leave, according to a police report.
"He had a charming story to go along with it though. He said somebody threw his keys on the roof and that's why he was up there," Watson said. "He kind of got a little fuzzy on the 'taking all his clothes off and sliding in the store' part."
