"SLOG! I need details on the supposedly naked man stuck up a tree in Ballard and/or Magnolia that just got my train and all the other southbound Sounder trains canceled," e-mailed Slog reader Forrest this morning. "What's the deal?"
We live to serve, Forrest. I put it down there in Morning News, but in case you were still wondering: KIRO 7 reports that a man "who is a suspect in a domestic violence incident" climbed into a very tall, very narrow tree near Discovery Park around 5:30 this morning. When officers responded, he apparently refused to come down and instead "removed some of his clothing and fashioned a hammock for himself in the tree." He stayed there for more than three hours, eventually coming down on his own.
