Police arrested a man who spent five hours naked and stuck in the chimney of his stepmother's California home.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Police say Michael Urbano locked himself out of the house early Saturday morning and decided to get in on a cable TV wire through the chimney.

He told police he thought taking off his clothes would help ease his way down the chimney.

But the cable wire broke, and Urbano fell, getting stuck about three-quarters of the way down. He was freed when a firefighter pushed him up to safety.

Urbano was arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of drugs.
