A lone transient brought fear and terror to downtown San Diego on Sunday, May 3. The unnamed man, wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt, climbed to the top of a crane on the construction site at 11th Avenue and B street.

Onlookers gasped as he threw empty beer bottles to the pavement, over 100 feet below. Shattered glass was strewn across the street.

Five police cars, fire trucks, and paramedics arrived on the scene about 15 minutes after the incident began. It became apparent that the man wasn’t suicidal, as he slowly began descending, pausing only to regain his composure. Back on solid ground, the man was arrested but taken away by ambulance.
