FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – Fort Lauderdale police stopped Chenard Neeley on March 22. Security video shows Mr. Neeley engaged in conversation with the officers just before he decided to run toward a 9-foot iron fence.
His idea to jump the fence was not a good one, because he didn’t make it, and ended up with a rod stuck through his leg, coming out his rear area.
And that’s how Mr. Neeley turned himself into a human kabob.
It took about 10 minutes of careful cutting by fire fighters to remove Neeley from the fence. But that was the just the start. From there, Neeley had to go to the hospital where emergency personnel very, very carefully used a torch to burn through the rod without burning through Neeley’s “soft tissue”, as described by Lt. Rick Pardo of Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue.
Doctors patched him up, and you can bet that’s one hard rod he won’t be missing.
