Man with no pants wrecks Seattle marina

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 09:00 p.m. HST, Sep 16, 2013

SEATTLE » A witness fired a shotgun to stop a man who was using a stolen 35-foot boat to ram other boats and docks Sunday night at the Queen City Yacht Club on Portage Bay in Seattle.

Police say the man suffered minor wounds to his head and hand. He stopped and was trying to get away when police arrived and took him into custody.

Police say the 22-year-old was naked from the waist down and apparently high on drugs. He was jailed for investigation of theft and property damage charges.

The witness who fired the shotgun was questioned at the scene and released.

This is why we need to be armed! That good citizen probably saved someone's life!

More guns = more peace. Makes sense to me. Having said that, all men half naked who are ramming boats should be shot on sight.

Not necessarily so. Look at yesterday's shooter at the Navy yard. He had gun(s) but peace was the last thing on his mind.

Publicbraddah, something went wrong with this incident. They are trying to figure out why he was allowed clearance and own a gun with his psychological problems. They also said he picked up a handgun and long rifle after he killed. Let's wait until we hear all the details and which ones are correct.

Correction, it should be his genitals, not his life, or to be humane only one nut.

I'm sure the police could have handled this situation. Speaking of police, N.Y. police just shot two innocent by-standers as they tried to hit an armed man. Those police are highly trained professionals, yet people still think the average citizen can somehow remain calm and control their shots better than police officers. I think people watch too many movies.

All who pass mental tests should be allowed to carry a firearm. Test should be mandatory every 2 years, paid for by the gun owner. That way the mentally defective would be screened out. As a welcome side effect many poor people could not afford gun ownership and that is good. Because the poor are much more likely than the rich to commit crimes.

I think plenty of the gun advocates would be weeded out, too, Grimbold. Plenty.

I ask this man at work if he wears the pants at home. He told me that he takes it off.

"apparently high on drugs" is not reporting. It is guessing. It is assuming.

Don't worry, folks. The Seattle community will rally together and raise enough money to send this guy to Hawaii, and they won't have to deal with him anymore.
