Believe it or not, Afghan violence is likely to rise! Bet you didn’t expect that! Also sensational, Michael Jackson returned to the stage!

Still, the biggest story of the ?night ? morning? is-

A naked man who attacked Phoenix firefighters as they battled a fire at a residential hotel Tuesday morning was listed in stable condition at St. Joseph’s hospital, Phoenix police said.

Police spokeswoman Stacie Derge said he appeared to be staying in the room that was on fire.

Crews were fighting a fire at the Oasis Hotel on Grand Avenue just after 6 a.m. when the man, wearing only a tablecloth, ran out of the hotel and climbed onto a fire truck.


He then began breaking antennae on the engine and several firefighters tried to restrain him.

Officers arriving at the fire to direct traffic found the firefighters in a fight with the man and had to subdue him with using repeated shocks with their Taser stun guns.

Police plan to interview the man Wednesday, Derge said.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Hopefully the man’s mental health is under investigation as well…
