LOS ANGELES (AP) — A man climbed and at times dangled from a crane at a Los Angeles construction site for 3½ hours Friday before being taken into custody.

The Fire Department says the man was apparently experiencing a behavioral emergency when he climbed the 150-foot-tall crane in East Hollywood around 6 a.m.

A section of Hollywood Boulevard had to be shut down during the incident.

The man finally gave up to police and was lowered to the ground. He did not appear to have any injury.
