SEATTLE — Seattle police say they aren’t pursuing charges against a shirtless man with a hammer who managed to get himself stuck in a basketball hoop.

Officer Drew Fowler said Monday the man was not booked into jail but sent to a hospital for a mental health evaluation.

The man climbed onto the hoop at Cal Anderson Park during May Day demonstrations Friday, though Fowler says it’s not clear if his actions were related to the protests.

Video showed him hanging upside down from the rim, sometimes by just one foot, as he waved the hammer around. It took several officers to get him down, helped by a firefighter who climbed a ladder to cut the net.
