A naked burglary suspect was pulled out of the chimney of a home near Culver City, California on Sunday morning, according to KTLA 5. The unidentified suspect claimed his drink was "laced" the night before.
The incident started around 7:40 in the morning on Sunday after a woman ran into a "nude intruder" inside of her home. The woman’s husband then confronted the individual, who reportedly ran away after an argument.
Police were notified and were searching for the suspect when the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department got a call 40 minutes later about a naked man stuck in a chimney in a neighboring town.
