The 29-year-old Carroll man who made national headlines in May when he was rescued naked from a local business’ chimney was arrested again on Saturday for being drunk when he reported to jail to serve time for another criminal conviction.

Jordan Kajewski had difficulty standing and holding his head up about 2:20 p.m. when he went to the Carroll County jail, according to court records.

Kajewski admitted he had been drinking alcohol but refused a breath test to determine his blood-alcohol concentration. He was arrested for public intoxication.

Kajewski apparently went to the jail to serve time for a trespassing conviction from October, in which he was punished with two days of jail. He is homeless and had broken into a house to find a place to sleep.

Police officers found an apparent illicit drug in his possession when they arrested him, but Kajewski has not been charged for it.

Kajewski has been convicted of four crimes since he moved this year to Carroll, where his mother lives.

He was convicted in May of OWI, which stemmed from a crash.

He was convicted in June of trespassing for the chimney incident, in which he claimed he was playing hide and seek with his cousin when he descended 20 feet down the chimney of Carroll Redemption Center and got stuck.

He was convicted of public consumption of alcohol in September for being drunk in an apartment complex. Kajewski was “talking to himself in an inaudible mumble,” court records show.

Kajewski faces up to a year in jail for Saturday’s public-intoxication arrest if he is convicted of the crime.
