Man Spends 5th Day Atop Tulsa Tower

TULSA, Okla., Aug. 15 (UPI) — A man police say has a history of mental illness Monday spent his fifth day atop a communications tower in Tulsa, Okla., as authorities waited below.

Police said William Boyd Sturdivant II was first spotted on the roof of the Clear Channel Communications building Wednesday. He was chased off but returned Thursday and climbed Clear Channel’s tower where he has been ensconced ever since, the Tulsa World reported.

Police Capt. Ryan Perkin said Sturdivant has been refusing food, water and cigarettes officers have been offering him, the newspaper said. Efforts by police and other agencies to coax him down have been fruitless.

“This situation is unusual,” Officer Leland Ashley said.

The World said court records show Sturdivant has previous convictions for second-degree burglary and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.
