Tulsa Tower Man Returns To Ground And Is Hospitalized

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A man who finally came down from an Oklahoma TV tower he scaled last week has been hospitalized.

The 25-year-old man came down Tuesday night after six days on a Clear Channel communications tower. Video posted on KTUL-TV's website showed the man climbing into a lift Tuesday night that was attached to a Tulsa Fire Department ladder truck.

Police spokesman Leland Ashley tells The Associated Press that the man was taken to a hospital for treatment of dehydration. Ashley says he will probably be transferred to a mental health facility for observation.

Ashley says he's not sure if the man will face charges. He says the only possible charge would be for trespassing. The man had been on the tower since Thursday.
