KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Sometimes we at FOX 4 go looking for news, and sometimes it comes to us. That was the case around 6:30 p.m. on Sunday when a man decided to climb the WDAF broadcast tower.

We don't know precisely why the man climbed the tower, but he brought a few beers along while he took in the view.

After tossing a few back, he tossed down the cans. The man stayed up there for a while, showing off for police and the camera crew.

Police were able to convince the man to come down after a short time.

After the illegal and very dangerous climb, the man left... in the back of a patrol car.
