Third Climber In Just Weeks Scales The New York Times Building

By KJ Mullins     Jul 9, 2008 in Crime
For the third time in just weeks a man scaled the New York Times building to unfurl a banner of Usama bin Laden over the T in the Times portion of the signage.
The latest climb took place Wednesday morning. By 5:30 a.m. the man was arrested after spending hours making cell phone calls and talking to the police.
The incident began about 1:30 a.m. when a man was first spotted climbing the 52-storey building. He said in a phone call that he was a 29-year-old college dropout
from Connecticut. Police have not confirmed this though as truth.
In the past few weeks two other have scaled the building resulting in security measures. The previous climbers were charged with reckless endangerment, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct during their June 5th climb.
Still today's climber managed to overcome obstacles that had been set up to hinder any other 'Spider-Man" missions.
