At about 9:50pm, Gallatin Steel security spotted a man climbing a high power electrical tower. When they confronted the man, he base jumped off of the tower and parachuted down then got into a grey Pontiac. He then headed toward Warsaw. After about a 20 minute search, Sheriff Nelson Brown spotted the man at Snappy tomato pizza next to the Warsaw BP. The man’s name is Robert Cook from Walton Ky. Robert told us that he loves to base jump because it is fun. He also said that he and other base jumpers research areas before attempting to jump and that he has jumped off of the Carew tower in Cincinnati before. The video seen below is of police talking to Robert. We don’t know at this time if any charges were filed but we will post that information once we get it.
