US Air Force veteran told pole flying American flag violates 'community's standards'

  US Air Force veteran told pole flying American flag violates 'community's standards' A U.S. Air Force veteran from Ohio said he was told to remove his flag pole Friday because it failed to meet community standards. Wayne Marchant, of Franklin, told WLWT-TV he received a letter from his homeowners’ association management company saying his flag pole didn’t meet the “community’s standards” and would need to be removed or modified “to ensure compliance.”"As a veteran, I wouldn't think to erect a flagpole and fly the American flag would be something that I would have to get permission to do," Marchant told the station.

An American flag-draped daredevil, who climbed a 200-foot crane in California as thousands of stunned spectators watched, was taken into custody Sunday three hours after the dangerous display began, police said.

It’s still unclear why the man, who has not yet been identified, decided to climb the crane just after 5 p.m. Sunday on Hollywood Boulevard. The man was spotted shirtless and barefoot climbing up and down the crane boom, FOX11 LA reported.

At one point, he took an American flag that was on the crane and wrapped it around himself. He was also seen dangling from a rope.

British daredevil Ally Law illegally climbed a 200 -metre tall crane in Melbourne, posted video on YouTube. New Delhi: Scared of heights? The crane is being used in the construction of a 62-floor building in the Australian city.

New Delhi: Scared of heights? Then you probably shouldn't watch British daredevil Ally Law's latest YouTube video. The 20-year-old recently visited Melbourne and filmed his vertigo-inducing climb up to the top of a crane more than 200 metres off the ground - no safety harness in sight.

Thousands of people watched the incident unfold for three hours.

“He climbed up and he was shirtless already, like he had his jeans on, then all of a sudden took them off and threw them on the ground," a witness told FOX11. "He took the American flag off the crane, was wearing it as a cape pretty much."

The man eventually came down from the crane on his own. Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Jose Torres said the man was “very apologetic” about the bizarre incident.

"He was rambling a lot of different things, not very comprehensive," Torres told KTLA. "The main thing is that he was mostly sorry for what he did and telling us that he didn’t want to put us in danger, nor did he want us to use all the resources that we did just for him."

The man was taken to a nearby hospital for a mental evaluation.
