Police say three daredevils accused of parachuting off the 1 World Trade Center tower last fall and an alleged accomplice are facing criminal charges including burglary and jumping from a structure.

Monday's arrests come eight days after a 16-year-old was arrested on charges of climbing up to the top of the nation's biggest skyscraper.

Police say an investigation into the Sept. 30 incident involved reviewing video footage from the area as well as other photographic evidence.

Defense attorneys Timothy Parlatore and Andrew Mancilla say three accused jumpers and an alleged accomplice on the ground are experienced BASE jumpers — the acronym stands for "building, span, antenna, earth." The lawyers say the men took care to keep from endangering anyone.
