Naked man atop downtown tower is apprehended by LAPD
Officers and firefighters were preparing to lower the man from the 220-foot tower in a basket, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
The man was expected to be taken to County-USC Medical Center for evaluation.
He took off his clothes as he climbed the tower in the 700 block of East Temple Street shortly after 4 p.m.
The tower is part of a city personnel building. It is unclear why the man climbed the structure.
