The man who spent several hours trapped in a pipe at a United Water facility on Wilson Avenue was rescued Friday morning and then promptly arrested.

Capt. Michael Fountain of the Manalapan Police Department said the man was 26-year-old township resident Asaf Mohammad, who was arrested for fourth-degree criminal trespass

United Water spokesman Rich Henning told NBC that workers “heard cries for help” coming from an area that has a wellhead with a storage tank when they arrived at the facility on Friday morning.

Jim Mastrokalos, director of operations for United Water, said the man was found in a decommissioned pipe that is 20 inches in diameter.

“He must have traversed through a basin and climbed up into a pipe for reasons unknown at this time,” Mastrokalos said.

I think he was doing street theater. A live performance of a scene from the movie, The Shawshank Redemption.

Has the FBI issued their mandatory ‘no sign of terrorism’ report yet?

Those usually come out 5 minutes after any such event.

When I googled him the first time like this: "Asaf Mohammad" manalapan, there were four pages of results, then a little while later there were only two pages of results. It went from 40 finds to 15 in about ten minutes..weird.

"...climbed up into a pipe for reasons unknown at this time..."

Was there a rimshot heard right after he said that?

The question no one here has asked:

How in the hell can a 26 y/o male fit into a 20” diameter pipe?

You know Joe I had wondered if there were any Mohammeds or Achmeds working at Freedom Industries. The thought entered my mind seeing we do have a mosque in Charleston.

Asaf Mohammad, 26, of Emily Drive in Manalapan was pulled out of the pipe at around 11 a.m. Friday, Captain Michael Fountain of the Manalapan Police Department said. \
\
Herring said that police have dealt with Mohamed on numerous occasions before and he has often been found under the influence of drugs.\
Authorities are unsure of how long he was in the pipe, but believe it to be several hours before the employees located him. http://manalapan.patch.com/groups/police-and-fire/p/manalapan-man-naked-when-extracted-from-water-facility-pipe}

Actually 20" diameter is fairly big. A lot of interior door are 24" wide and most people don't have any problem with those.

Google is in league with the enemy and received their marching orders from the WH. Did BING do the same thing?

“Asaf Mohammad and “reasons unknown”....

Hmm...
Nice, you know it is this type of thinking that gives FR a bad name. So a Muslim is found near a water facility and you jump to the conclusion that he is trying to commit an act of terror. Maybe he was just really thirsty. I guess you never get thirsty?
