Electrical Tower

 

Westport, S.D. – (AP) A man is in custody after allegedly leading police on a chase in northeast South Dakota and then climbing halfway up an electrical transmission tower. The chase Sunday afternoon began in Aberdeen and ended northeast of Westport when a Brown County deputy talked the man into coming down from the high-voltage tower. Witnesses say the man parked his car in Westport, swam across the Elm River and climbed the tower. Authorities did not immediately identify him.
