Police dealing with a man at the top of a light pole

Surprise, AZ (May 14, 2015) The Surprise Police and Surprise Fire Department personnel are on-scene at the Surprise Recreational 8-acre Field, just north of the Surprise Stadium, dealing with a man who has climbed to the top of an 80 foot tall light pole.

The man is standing on a plate form near the top of the pole holding an upside down US flag. The man refused initial commands to come down off of the light pole.

Emergency personnel continue to negotiate with the man in order to achieve a safe resolution and get him safely down from the light pole.

A media staging area will be set up at the Surprise Aquatic Center located at 15831 North Bullard Avenue.
