I'm sorry, but I laughed so hard....!

Dateline: Seattle

Seattle police say an intoxicated 25-year-old man, who told officers he believed he was a ninja, was impaled on a metal spike Monday night after a failed attempt to jump a 5-foot fence.

Around 11:15 p.m., officers responded to the scene after a 41-year-old man called police to say he had been assaulted. Officers arrived and found the impaled would-be ninja.

It turns out the older man, who was heavily intoxicated, tried to go into a sports bar. The younger man, who isn't a bar employee, barred the man from going inside-- and an argument between the two men escalated into a fight.

At one point, the men chased each other in the street.

In an attempt to get away, the younger man "thought he'd basically be able to jump over this fence, and he didn't quite make it," police said.

As a police account of the incident notes, "Clearly he was overconfident in his abilities."

That's when the older man called police to say he'd been assaulted.

As police arrived to search for a suspect, one officer heard the 25-year-old's screams and found him stuck on the fence with the metal spike jutting out from his buttock. The man was bleeding profusely.

He was taken to Harborview Medical Center. Questioned at the hospital, the man told police he believed he was a ninja.

Neither man was charged with assualt.

I shouldn't laugh... I really shouldn't!

AG out!
