Police: Man rolls around Seattle in office chair

SEATTLE (AP) - The early morning call to Seattle police described a man rolling around the west side of the city's Capitol Hill neighborhood in an office chair.

Officers also found that the 29-year-old man had a set of drum sticks, a hubcap tied to his arm and was wearing motorcycle goggles and several scarves and purses. He told them he was "late for a gig."

Seattle police report on their website that the man initially gave police a fake name early Thursday, then told them to handcuff him. They did.

Officers say the man also rolled into traffic and spat at an officer.

A search showed he was carrying a foot-long crowbar.

Police took him to a hospital for a mental evaluation.
