Dozens of cops were called to a bizarre scene in Seattle when a half-naked man wielding a hammer had to be rescued after somehow getting himself stuck in a basketball hoop

The man, who can be clearly seen in the video thrashing around like a fish caught in a net, was deemed a danger to himself and others so police officers had to step in to try and free him.

Eventually firefighters were called and they were able to free his foot from the net, and once on the ground he was promptly taken into custody by the police.

Nobody still has any idea how the hell he got in there, or what he was even trying to do.
