Maribel man charged with bungee jumping off construction crane

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WTAQ) - An eastern Wisconsin man faces a criminal charge for climbing on a construction crane and jumping down with a bungee cord.

26-year-old Nicholas Propson of Maribel is charged with a misdemeanor count of illegally entering a construction site.

Authorities said he bungee-jumped from a 140-foot tall construction crane last month at Acuity Insurance in Sheboygan. His feat appeared on YouTube -- and after that, a company manager called police.

The video showed other people, including another person behind him on the crane. Propson turned himself in 4 days after the incident, but police said he refused to tell them who was with him.

The contractor which owned the crane said the machine had to be re-certified after the incident, and that process cost $3,000. The firm filed a request for restitution in Sheboygan County Circuit Court.
