Man who climbed crane in Dallas taken into custody more than 24 hours later

Dallas police say they have a man in custody who climbed to the top of a construction crane on Singleton Boulevard in Dallas.

Police were first called to the area just before 9 a.m. on Monday.

The man was believed to have already been in the crane for at least more than an hour.

Officers blocked the streets while negotiators attempted to lure the man down from the crane high above the street.

Dallas police say the man was taken into custody around 7:45 a.m. Tuesday as rain was coming through the area.

SWAT teams, Dallas Fire-Rescue and Dallas police were seen in the area throughout the day.

Fire-Rescue says the man became "more cooperative as the circumstances began to take their toll on him."

He was eventually placed in a harness and lowered to the ground.

The man has been taken to a local hospital for further evaluation.
