The man scaled to on top of the Skyscraper ride, where he unfurled an American flag.
Seaside Heights Borough Administrator Christopher Vaz said the man "has an issue with a police department somewhere on Barnegat Bay Peninsula. Not our PD."
He was back down from the top of the ride sometime after 10 a.m. and taken into police custody.
Well the guys name is Chris and he made his descent. Looks like he spoke calmly with police, shaking hands, gave an officer his flag to fold and then was taken away. Seaside Heights is never boring. pic.twitter.com/ettVPc4vX6— Kayla (@sad_savior) June 22, 2020
Vaz said the man was charged with trespassing and was apparently protesting a personal issue with the police departments in Lavallette and Bay Head.
