(SeattlePI)   This was just like a real-life Donkey Kong game, except instead of a giant ape it was a deranged man. And instead of Mario, it was a cop with a Taser   (blog.seattlepi.com) divider line 33

He was booked into King County Jail

King County, King Kong. Close enough.

A man was arrested early Monday after breaking into a downtown Seattle construction site and holding police off for several hours with a piece of rebar.

That must have been a big intimidating piece of rebar he was thrusting.

I was all ready to say, "Proper use of a taser" except it didn't work. Maybe next week...

For a story that took place at the opposite corner of the continental US, this headline was very Florida-y.
 
2013-01-28 10:20:06 PM  
Wow, slightly surprised there was a peaceful negotiation with the rebarmaster and none were hurt.

The suspect would've gotten away, but he went up a ladder that was missing several rungs.

It wasn't me, I swear to god!  But if you hear about some Seattlite running from ghosts and eating fruit, or spinning in circles and shooting rocks, well... what can I say?

I live next door to the building, the dude was on the same floor as me about 20-25 feet from my bedroom window. Did not sleep well last night as he was screaming rather loudly for a couple hours.

He had been going on for awhile and I thought he was down the street somewhere, then when I looked out my kitchen window a bit later there were two cop cars sitting in the parking lot shining their spotlights on him and people were standing around looking up at him. At one point there where 5 or 6 cop cars out there, this was on the First Street side and I guess the negotiators must of gone in from Second St.

I had to go outside to see what everyone was looking at. It was between 6:30 and 7:00 this morning when it all came to an end.

I think every cab driver in Seattle came by and parked and some even got out and stood there watching it all.

Maybe in Texas One could get away with that, but not here!

I really did not pay much attention to the shouting, I just thought, oh here we go again, hope he moves on down the street soon! There are several screamers in this area who come out on a regular basis!

Isn't this every farkers dream, to be close to the story but not involved in it?

I really should have gone back out with a camera, but by this time the cops where tired of the looky loos and folks standing there talking loud and making jokes and told them to move way back in case he jumped or maybe pulled out a gun or something!

Did someone say Donkey Kong?

I don't get to whip this out very often. My top to bottom DK restoration.

Very soothing, especially Aquatic Ambiance. My favorite theme is Fear Factory.

Have you played Donkey Kong Country Returns? Nearly all of DKC1's music is in it, and sounding just as good if not more so than ever. I'm really hoping Retro Studios makes a second Returns so they can bring back DKC2's themes, especially Stickerbush Symphony.

Next time, throw a rock or something, get him really riled up.

Back in the day, if Donkey Kong was busy, Crazy Climber was usually free.

No, I'm pretty sure you still needed a quarter.

...climb up the ladder quickly, and then spin yourself around.
