Well known local daredevil and adventurer Billy Wilson got a surprise Saturday afternoon when he BASE jumped (parachuted) from the roof of a high rise building in downtown Seattle. Police were waiting for him to touch down.
"I've BASED about 90 buildings across the country," says an angry Wilson. "I've been arrested about twenty times out of all those jumps. But I've never been beaten like I was on Saturday! That was ridiculous!"
A team of "about twenty" SPD officers were alerted to Wilson's stunt, and had assembled at the most likely landing area on 4th and Union.
Witnesses reported that Wilson touched down, and then immediately put his hands in the air as a token of surrender.
"Then the cops just charged him like it was a football game," said a bystander.
Bob Charlen, a senior Detective with SPD, said that he couldn't comment formally on the case until all the facts were in, but it appeared that Wilson "had made a threatening move", and that was the motivation for the police team to tackle him.
Wilson said, "It's ironic---the jumps are always perfectly safe. It's the landing parties that're going to kill me."
