Gilbert, Arizona (The Weekly Vice) - Stephen Nowak, a 33-year-old domestic violence suspect was jailed Monday after he allegedly got stuck in a ceiling while trying to escape from police.
According to Gilbert Police, officers were dispatched after 911 operators were advised of possible domestic violence inside a home just outside of Gilbert. A witness reported hearing banging sounds coming from inside the home and a woman could be heard yelling "Please help, please....no."
When police arrived, a female victim stated that her boyfriend had damaged the home before retreating up into the attic. When Nowak refused to leave the attic, officers deployed pepper spray in an effort to flush him out.
Investigators say that's when Nowak began punching through the floor of the attic, attempting to create a hole through the drywall into a room below. Nowak managed to get half of his body through the hole before he became lodged in the ceiling of the room he was attempting to lower himself into.
There's no indication as to why he wouldn't expect police to be waiting for him in the event he successfully dropped through - but then again, that's why he's here on The Weekly Vice.
Nowak was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and then booked into jail on charges of domestic violence, assault, disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property.
