Sixteen arrests were made during last Friday's "May Day" marches held in Seattle, Washington.

However, one stood out from all of the others. The arrest of a hammer-wielding, shirtless man who somehow managed to get himself stuck on a basketball rim on a city playground.

Captured by a camera on a police helicopter, a group of officers encircled the basketball goal, attempting to help the man break free from the backboard.

The man was reportedly swinging a hammer, keeping officers at arm's length. When he appeared to grow weary, cops were able to grab the man's arms, and bring in a ladder to get him down.

The Seattle police department's Twitter account shared news on the event, along with a touch of humor.
