    MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (AP) -- A naked man got stuck in the chimney of a bookstore early Christmas morning.

    Don't worry, it wasn't Santa Claus.

    The 34-year-old man was treated Thursday for bruises and abrasions at Hennepin County Medical Center after being found naked and lodged in the furnace flue at Uncle Hugo's Bookstore. He was expected to be charged with attempted burglary on Friday.

    "He was lucky," said police Lt. Mike Sauro. "He was only stuck in that chimney for a few hours. It's kind of a happy ending, because if he had been in there until that store opened Friday morning, it's my judgment he would have died.

    "He doesn't appear to be a hard-core criminal, just stupid."
