Police use hamburgers to lure naked man from LA radio tower

A naked man climbed to the top of a radio tower in downtown Los Angeles and refused to come down from his perch for hours -- until police complied with his request for two hamburgers from McDonald's.

The man, a 45-year-old Arizona resident, climbed to the top of the structure Wednesday afternoon, shedding his clothes during the ascent, the Los Angeles Times reported.

It was not yet clear what prompted him to scale the tower -- which was part of a city personnel building -- but he remained there in a standoff with police for hours.

Police sources told the newspaper that, at one point, he asked for hamburgers from McDonald's. Officials apparently fulfilled his request and the man agreed to come down after eating his meal.

The man was wrapped in a blanket, lowered to the ground in a basket by a makeshift pulley system and taken into custody.
