Man Climbs Tulsa Radio Tower – Still There After FIVE DAYS

The Tulsa Police Department’s longest standoff ever continues as a man refuses to come down from the Clear Channel radio tower at 27th and Memorial. The 25-year-old man has been trespassing on the 300-foot tower since about 11 a.m. Thursday.

Monday morning, the Tulsa Fire Department raised a bucket to the man they identify only as William. The man requested a Sprite, Dr Pepper, Rooster Booster and a cappuccino.

“Dehydration at a cellular level cannot be denied,” Senior Negotiator Cole Butler told the News On 6 Saturday.
William managed to sleep on parts of the framework during the day Saturday and overnight Sunday. At one point he lost or kicked off his tennis shoes, so he now is clad only in shorts, a T-shirt and red socks.
He shouted down to police officers repeatedly through the night Saturday, telling them he’d rather be on the tower than “down there,” and crowing like a rooster as the sun rose.
He denies that he plans to commit suicide.
“There’s no such thing as suicide,” he said.
Butler agreed that he doesn’t believe William is suicidal; however, he noted that could change at any time.
“Honestly, if he was wanting to jump, I think it would have happened by now. But that doesn’t mean it won’t happen in the next five seconds,” the 30-year veteran of the Tulsa Police Department said.
Temperatures are expected to rise to the mid-90s on Monday.
