A man was arrested after climbing the outside of the JW Marriott tower in downtown Los Angeles Tuesday morning.
Video recorded by Traffic News Los Angeles shows the man scaling the side of the 667-foot skyscraper, located at 900 W. Olympic Boulevard.
A photo posted to Twitter shows the climber had erected a large banner reading, “Support Women. Not Abortion” from the corner of the building. A social media post from a known anti-abortion activist, Maison DesChamps, who goes by the name of “Pro Life Spiderman,” shows him climbing the exterior of a building in downtown L.A.
DesChamps made headlines locally earlier this year when he climbed Salesforce Tower in San Francisco.
The Los Angeles police and fire departments responded to the scene and were able to talk the man down from the skyscraper and eventually took him into custody, officials said.
Streets were briefly closed in the area.
Authorities did not release any further information about the incident.
