Man ends up naked, stuck in trash chute escape

Ah, shoot! Man ends up naked, stuck in trash chute escape. Backed up trash saves life.

Police say he threatened roommate with knife, dived into chute when officers arrived

HONOLULU; Honolulu emergency crews rescued a naked man from a trash chute of a Waikiki apartment building early Thursday morning. The call to 911 was made just before 4 a.m. A man living on the seventh floor of 1717 Ala Wai Blvd. called police to report that his roommate, who he said had been drinking heavily, physically assaulted him and threatened him with a knife.

When officers arrived, the suspect ran and jumped into the trash chute. He lost his shorts on the way down and was stopped by the trash that had piled up to the third floor, police said.
