Naked man climbs downtown tower; police trying to coax him down
"He started taking his clothes off as he climbed," said Officer Karen Rayner of the Los Angeles Police Department.
She said it was unclear why the man had climbed the tower.
The 220-foot communications tower is on a city building in the 700 block of East Temple Street.
The man is believed to be in his 30s or 40s and may be an Arizona resident, police said.
Police and firefighters were at the incident, which was reported about 4 p.m. No other details were immediately available.
