WATCH: Cops Catch Trump Tower Climber

CBS2 has the latest.

SISTER STATION, TV 10/55.
JOE, HE IS ALMOST — HE IS
ALMOST LEVEL WITH THEM.
HE IS ALMOST AT THAT AREA.
HE IS REMOVING AT A SNAIL'S
PACE ALL AFTERNOON.
WE HAVE BEEN WATCHING IT —
THEY ARE MARC THE OFFERING
AND HE REJECTS IT.
IT LOOKS THAT WAY.
YES.
BODY LANGUAGE SNOW.
THE OFFICERS SAYING HERE, TAKE
THIS.
IT'S NOT HAPPENING.
IT'S GETTING DANGEROUS.
HE IS BEYOND HIS STRESS.
HE IS NOT TETHERED AT ALL.
AND YOU KNOW, WE GOT TO MAKE
SURE IF THEY ARE GOING TO GRAB
HIM, THAT HE IS GOING TO DO
SO.
GOT TO ADMIRE THE PATIENCE
OF THESE OFFICERS.
THAT'S WHY THEY ARE IN THE
JOB THAT THEY ARE.
YOU KNOW, NOT EVERY COP CAN DO
THIS BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE
THE PATIENCE FOR IT.
YOU KNOW, THIS IS SOMETHING
THAT IS A SKILL THAT YOU CAN'T
KEEP CAN'T TEACH.
THIS OFFICER THIS IS LEFT HAND
IT SEEMED THAT HE HAD CLICKED
OPEN THAT CARABINER LOOKING
FOR A SPOT TO ATTACH IT
SOMEWHERE.
LOOKS LIKE HE IS GOING TO
TRY TO DO IT NOW.
LOOKS LIKE HE WAS GOING TO
REACH DOWN AND TRY TO STRAP IT
AROUND HIS KNAPSACK OR WHAT
HAVE YOU.
BUT, UM, NOW HE CHANGED HIS
MIND.
YOU WONDER, DO THEY
IDENTIFY A SPOT WHERE THEY CAN
JUST HOOK HIM AND GRAB HIM?
IS THAT POSSIBLE?
HE HAS A HARNESS ON.
IS THAT PART OF THE
CALCULATION?
IT'S THE ONLY ONE AVAILABLE
THERE BUT WE DON'T WANT A
PERSON'S BODY WEIGHT HANGING
BY THAT.
WE CAN SEE THE HARNESS HE
HAS ON THAT AS HE IS CLIMBING.
THERE HAS TO BE A SPOT ON
THERE.
WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HE IS
SAYING.
IS HE COMPLETELY IRRATIONAL?
IS HE MAKING ANY KIND OF
SENSE?
THEY HAVE TO JUDGE WHAT KIND
OF GUY THEY ARE DEALING WITH
BEFORE THEY MAKE A MOVE.
YEAH.
THE OFFICERS SAYING COME ON.
THIS IS A BIG MOVE HERE.
BECAUSE THE WHOLE WORLD IS
WATCHING.
HE IS WAVING THEM OFF.
SAYING COME ON.
BUT JUST THE SPACE YOU KNOW
NOT TOUCHING HIM, AGAIN THAT
SKILL OR —
OUR FIRST CONTACT.
HERE WE GO.
HE IS TRYING TO PULL
HIMSELF ON THE OTHER SIDE.
THEY GOT HIM.
THEY GOT HIM.
OKAY.
THANK GOD.
WOW.
AND HE IS STILL STRUGGLING
IT SEEMS.
RIGHT.
BUT AT LEAST HE IS IN.
NOW WHAT HAPPENS?
YUP.
WELL, I SAID NOW THEY WILL
PROBABLY SEND HIM TO BELLEVUE
FOR A PSYCHOLOGICAL EE
ABSOLUTELY SITUATION.
THAT'S THE NORMAL COURSE OF
BUSINESS BECAUSE THAT WAS
FORCE AND STRENGTH.
YOU LOOK AT THE ARMS ON THESE
GUYS.
THEY HAVE GOT SOME STRENGTH.
OFFICERS AND NYPD DID A
GREAT JOB ON THIS.
NOBODY GETS HURT.
THEY ARE SUPPORTING EACH
OTHER THERE.
YOU CAN SEE THE ESU OFFICERS
NOW TRYING TO TAKE THESE
SUCTION CUPS OFF THE WINDOWS
OF THE TRUMP TOWER.
SOMEWHERE IN THE 20s THE FLOOR
OF THE 58-STORY BUILDING.
CAN YOU GO OVER THE DELICATE
PROCEDURE HERE?
BECAUSE AGAIN, WE DON'T KNOW
HIS MOTIVE WAS, WHAT HE HAD IN
THAT BAG.
I DID SEE A BOTTLE OF WATER
BUT THAT'S SUCH A PART OF IT
HERE RIGHT?
SURE.
ABSOLUTELY.
YOU'RE DEALING WITH THE
UNKNOWN.
BUT ONE THING THAT THE NYPD
DOES IS THAT WHEN THEY HAVE
SPECIAL POSITIONS LIKE ESU AND
HOSTAGE NEGOTIATIONS THEY TAKE
THE VERY BEST, THE CREAM OF
THE CROP OUT OF THE 35,000
OFFICERS THAT THEY HAVE.
SO THIS IS — THE WHOLE WORLD
CAN SEE HOW PROFESSIONAL THEY
REALLY ARE.
WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT, JOE,
THERE WAS A LOT WE DIDN'T KNOW
TODAY WE HAD NO IDEA WHO, WHY
OR WHAT WAS GOING ON WITH THIS
GUY.
THEY DESERVE A COMMENDATION
FOR PULLING THIS OFF WITHOUT
ANYBODY GETTING HURT.
THE PATIENCE, STRENGTHS,
SKILL.
JUST MADE IT HAPPEN.
WANTING TO GRAB HIM WHEN
YOU PROBABLY WANTED TO AND
WAIT FOG THAT ARE MOMENT.
AND TO WAIT FOR THEM TO
TRAP HIM.
CHECKMATE.
GAME OVER.
YOU COULDN'T LET HIM CLIMB THE
WHOLE BUILDING.
WE WOULD BE HERE UNTIL
TOMORROW!
AT THIS RATE.
IS VALERIE CASTRO STILL
AVAILABLE TO US ON THE GROUND?
JUST WONDERING WHAT THE CROWD
REACTION WOULD BE AT THIS TIME
BECAUSE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN
GATHERED DOWN THERE FOR HOURS
WATCHING THIS, AS WELL.
POLICE SET UP THE BARRICADES,
A LOT OF PEOPLE ON SOCIAL
