Naked Drunk Man Shot Down From Electricity Pylon

Mir Wei

Metro - Mir Wei, 43 - who'd been moved from his pitch in Hechi, southern China - stripped off his clothes and dangled from the high tension wire. But after hours of negotiations, fed up cops shot him with a wildlife tranquilliser gun and caught his body in a sling before lowering him to the ground. 'He was very upset at being made to move and he had also been drinking quite heavily which might explain his behaviour,' said a police spokesman. He was taken to hospital, where he is believed to be recovering well.

Seems like we have a lot of alcohol-related posts today. Welcome to the Speakeasy! However, as protests go, this is a pretty good one. The dude is obviously displaying some impressive climbing skills, balance and persistence. No one dies, lots of fun for everyone watching, pure entertainment. Move along people, move along....
