LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they arrested a man early Thursday morning after he was caught 30-feet up in a tree!
It happened shortly after 1 a.m. near the corner of Pope St. and Embry Ave.
Officers were called to a residence at that location after they received a report of a white male climbing a tree and talking to himself.
A witness was worried that the man was either going to harm himself, or break into a home. Police say the witness was especially concerned about break-ins, since there had been a number of them in the area recently.
When officers arrived, they allegedly found 29-year-old Bradley D. English "high in the tree, approximately 30 feet up."
Police asked English to come down, and he complied, according to the arrest report.
The owner of a home that was nearby was "alarmed" when he realized English was in the tree, according to police, and immediately assumed that English was attempting to use the tree as a means of climbing onto his roof so he could break in to the house.
Police say English told them multiple times that he had been drinking and that he "just likes climbing trees."
"The tree that he was climbing was enclosed by a wooden picket fence and provided direct access to [the] roof of [the] home," police say.
English was arrested and charged with alcohol intoxication, disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing, according to police.
