The St. Paul, Minnesota, man who became one of the most famous climbers in the world was arrested Monday after a storm on the Twin Cities’ Twin Cities Parkway.
The 26-year-old climber was arrested in Bentonville after police responded to reports of a man with a gun on the bridge, the city said in a statement.
Police say the man, who was described as a white man in his 20s, was arrested and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and criminal trespass.
He was also cited for failing to comply with a court order to provide a breath sample.
The arrest comes after the man’s sister said he was not in custody when officers arrived at the scene.
Police have not released details about the arrest, including how long the man was in custody or why he was arrested.
Authorities did not say whether the man had an attorney.
