The Phoenix Fire Department reported about the incident and rescued DesChamps from the building after a two-hour operation. No injuries were reported.
DesChamps was previously arrested last May for climbing the 1,070-foot Salesforce Tower in San Francisco, which is the second tallest skyscraper in California.

During an interview with ABC7, he revealed that he climbed the building to raise money for anti-abortion charities. When asked if he regretted the climb, he simply replied, “No… it was fun. I’d do it again.”
He also revealed that he planned the climb for a month and used Google Maps to assess the building.
DesChamps’ actions have once again landed him in trouble with the law as he was arrested and faces charges of trespassing and criminal nuisance.
The thrill of climbing tall buildings may be exciting for DesChamps, but it also poses a risk to himself and emergency responders who are called to rescue him.
Seen a lot of crazy things at past Super Bowls.

The dangers of climbing tall buildings cannot be ignored and it is essential that people refrain from such activities to ensure their own safety and that of others.
Overall, while DesChamps may have the skills and bravery to climb tall buildings, it is imperative that he considers the consequences of his actions and the impact it has on others.
