A base jumper was arrested for jumping off an 893-foot tower near COLUMBUS, OH late FRIDAY afternoon, reports the COLUMBUS DISPATCH.
JAMES ALLEN HARE, 22, faces a criminal trespassing charge after making the jump. HARE allegedly climbed the ladder-less tower and jumped, landing in a nearby cornfield. The tower, owned by eTECH OHIO, is not, as reported elsewhere, used as a tower for the primary antenna for any local broadcast radio stations, but serves as a communications and auxiliary tower.
