Nude man climbs billboard
DALLAS - A service road was shut down as rescue crews worked to get a nude man down from a billboard he climbed Friday afternoon in the 7800 block of John W. Carpenter Freeway in Dallas.
Officers were called to the scene at about 1:10 p.m. The service road was closed as Dallas-Fire Rescue drove a ladder truck to the scene.
Two officers and a firefighter escorted the man, a white male in his mid-30s, down from the billboard, said a Dallas Police Department spokesman.
The man was taken to Parkland Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.
