    Man Gets Caught In Chimney

    Just in time for Christmas, an unbelievable crime attempt that would have the Grinch smiling. As NewsChannel 8's Teri Bowers explains, it's not about ribbons and wrapping, but brisket and barbecue.

    The Grinch didn't need firemen to rescue him from the chimney. But, Jeremy Brownrigg did.

    "It's almost impossible to tell the story without laughing," says Skiatook Fire Captain Bob Nail.

    Brownrigg became stuck in the vent pipe atop J&E Barbecue in Skiatook. He was there for more than eight hours.

    "They said the neighbor heard someone hollering 'help me, help me' in the chimney," says restaurant owner Eddie Hamlin.

    Firefighters had never seen a rescue quite like this.

    "He had lowered himself down, his hands were over his head, so the three of us reached down and pulled him up," says Rick Postier. "So, sheer physical force, it was pretty greasy. He slid through the pipe."

    So did LE look around to see if this guy had a bag of gifts? Maybe he was really Santa, after a no cookie diet.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    LOL, the owner of the BBQ place seems to be in good humor about it all!
