SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. – A man climbed the 170 foot tall ‘Skyscraper” ride Monday morning to hoist an American flag in a protest against Jersey Shore police.
Angulo remained atop the ride for around 4 hours as a small crowd gathered below on the pier.
Police deployed both aviation and repelling teams before Angulo eventually descended.
He was taken into custody by New Jersey State Police uninjured.
“I’m a little off, you could say. Some people see a roller coaster in the ocean; I see a jungle gym,” Angulo told the Daily News in 2013.
Seaside Heights gained national attention in 2009 when it became the primary location for several seasons of the MTV reality television series “Jersey Shore.”
