Man charged after climbing construction crane

A man is facing criminal charges after climbing a construction crane overnight and assaulting an officer who was attempting to get him to safety.
 
Shortly before 1 a.m., officers were called to the construction site of the Nova Centre located at the intersection of Argyle and Sackville Streets in Halifax. Two men were observed climbing to the top of one of the construction cranes within the gated property. Upon officers’ arrival, the men had climbed down from the crane and were standing on the top floor of the building under construction but were unable to find their way out of the structure. Officers climbed to the men’s location and arrested a 23-year-old Halifax man without incident for public intoxication. The second man refused to comply with officer’s directions and pushed one of the officers who was attempting to arrest him. Both men were eventually brought back to safety and no one was injured.
 
Twenty-three-year-old Darren Andre Pettipas of Linwood was held in custody overnight. He will appear in Halifax Provincial Court today to face charges of resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.
