Every now and then a story breaks through that is so out-there that even the most jaded person may shake. One such case happened on Tuesday, when police arrested a man who climbed a huge tower. While Instagramming. And who goes by Pro-Life Spiderman.
The man, later referred to as one Maison Des Champs (sounds legit), was discovered sweeping the San Francisco Salesforce Tower, which stands at 1,070 feet and 61 stories. Police were prepared and waiting to take him into custody. He faces two misdemeanor charges: one for trespassing and the other for failing to comply with police orders.
Des Champs was protesting the leaked Supreme Court draft by Justice Samuel Alito, in which he indicated that Roe v. Wade might be overturned. He was a rock climber and anti-abortion activist, and he claimed that he had recently begun protesting the procedure by scaling skyscrapers. And here''s his alias, which might not be helpful to the other Spider-Men out there.
Although many would surely not agree with his politics, almost everyone can agree that this is a substantial feat, as shown in the below videos.
