According to police, the man was wearing “crotchless chaps-style spandex with his genitals and buttocks showing,” Seattle’s Publicola reports.
When police and firefighters arrived at the park, located at Third Avenue and Yesler Way, about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, they found the man letting the flames touch his genitals and buttocks, a park department spokeswoman said.
The man told an officer that he was having a “weenie roast” as he gyrated over the flame.
Firefighters put out the fire and police had the man involuntary committed to Harborview for a mental evaluation.
