Scorch of 92.9 the X locked himself in a cage last Thursday, to raise money for local animal shelters and K-9 programs. He spent six days in the kennel at the Milwaukee Burger Company parking lot. He stayed put, night and day, rain or shine, with a total of two hours of sleep.

Storms soaked him and his equipment, and winds blew down his tent on Sunday and Monday. His only opportunity out of the crate was for bathroom breaks, and for an unexpected side effect. Scorch had to get a visit from some EMT’s on Tuesday morning, which has never happened to him before.

“I was having some chest issues,” Scorch said. “They took my blood pressure, which I don’t want to mention, because you’ll have me committed. They said maybe a touch of pneumonia, but if I feel better when I am out, it’s all good. If I don’t, go to the hospital. They said finish the event, so, I am finishing the event.”

Scorch said he raised $21,000. The first thing he wanted to do after getting out was see his own dog and use his own bathroom.
