Brooklyn Bridge Climber Arrested After Scaling Landmark to Snap Photos

By    |   Monday, 17 Nov 2014 08:33 AM

The Brooklyn Bridge climber, who scaled the landmark over the weekend to take photos, has been arrested.

Police say 23-year-old Yonathan Souid of Esnandes, France, climbed over a fence on the pedestrian walkway just after noon Sunday to reach a cable beam connected to the tower on the Manhattan side of the famed span connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan, according to The Associated Press.

He has been charged with reckless endangerment and criminal trespass.

The daredevil feat comes seven months after two German artists scaled both towers of the Brooklyn Bridge and switched the American flags atop them for white flags.

In August, a Russian tourist was arrested after ascending a cable to the top of one of the towers.
