By    |   Monday, 25 Aug 2014 12:38 PM

A New York man was arrested over the weekend after climbing the Brooklyn Bridge to snap a couple photos in what marked the famed structure's second security breach in a month.

Yaroslav Kolchin, 24, was taken into police custody by officers waiting for him at the bottom of the bridge on the Brooklyn side Sunday, The Associated Press reported.

"We watched him start to walk up that beam," a police source told the New York Daily News. "He took some photos at the top and made his own way down. We took him into custody as he got back to the security gate."

Aviation and harbor units joined police in responding to reports of a trespasser. Kolchin was later charged with reckless endangerment and criminal trespass, according to the AP.

Last month, white flags mysteriously replaced the American banners atop the iconic bridge, stumping officials as to how they got there. Two German artists later claimed responsibility for the stunt, which highlighted the weak security of the structure.

The pranksters have yet to be charged.
