POLICE OFFICERS in Oregon say a domestic disturbance suspect more or less fell into their hands — through the ceiling.

Portland police were called to a home yesterday to deal with an intoxicated man reportedly threatening his relatives.

Lt Robert King says they found him barricaded in the attic and determined he wasn’t a threat, so they began to leave with the intention of following up later.

They say that’s when they heard a crash and returned to find the man had fallen through the ceiling and onto the living room floor.

Twenty-one-year-old Aaron Deon Kinsey was not injured in the fall. He was booked on domestic violence charges, fourth-degree assault and harassment.
