SPD: Pantless man kicks down door in search of coat

Here’s a quick quiz:

You know you’ve imbibed way too much when:

a) you urinate on yourself;

b) you lose your pants;

c) you end up flat on your back;

d) you suffer inexplicable cuts and bruises.

According to Seattle police, one man managed to do all of the above during a bizarre incident Friday morning at Yesler Terrace. The man, sans pants, kicked down the door of an apartment in the 300 block of 11th Avenue and told the person inside he was “looking for his coat,” police said.

Police responded to the apartment just before 11 a.m. and found the man flat on his back in the hallway outside the victim’s apartment. Police say he was “very intoxicated,” had urinated on himself and was covered in cuts, scrapes and bruises.

Officers spoke with the apartment resident, who said he had never seen the man before. Police then spoke with a second man inside the apartment. He admitted he had been “partying” at the apartment with Mr. Very Intoxicated the night before.

The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment.

Police say it’s unclear how the man suffered his various cuts and bruises.

As for the man’s missing pants, a police account of the incident doesn’t disclose the whereabouts.

Officers did find the man’s missing coat — he was wearing it.
