After 4-Day Police Standoff, Man Still Perched Atop KOKI Broadcast Tower

Police in Tulsa are entering the fourth day of a standoff with a man who refuses to come down from the station tower at KOKI, the Fox affiliate in Tulsa.

According to the station’s website, the 25-year-old man, who has been identified only as William, has refused multiple rescue attempts by police and fire personnel. The standoff began at 11 a.m. Thursday morning when KOKI staffers discovered the man trespassing and chased him to the roof, where he gained access to the broadcast tower.

KOKI has been reporting on the story with dramatic video of the man shouting down at police (watch after the jump). The man has been without food or water since Friday, when police were able to coax him into drinking some Gatorade.
