WTC Climber Arrested at Another High-Rise


Authorities say a young daredevil who climbed 1 World Trade Center  in 2014 has been arrested on top of another Manhattan high-rise.

Police say 19-year-old Justin Casquejo of Weehawken, New Jersey, was arrested Thursday night at the Paramount Tower apartment building on East 39th Street.

Casquejo was accused of accessing the roof without permission and hanging off a ledge. He was awaiting a court appearance Friday.

Casquejo also was arrested in December after videos posted on social media showed him dangling from buildings and scaffolding near Central Park.

His attorney, Jeremy Saland, says they look forward to addressing the charges in court after reviewing the allegations.
