HOUSTON, TX – A different spin on the game Chutes and Ladders in Houston. This time, a suspect no doubt said “shoot!” when he had to be rescued with a ladder.

Police swung by a construction site after reports of a suspicious man lurking around.

When police arrived, what did they find? You guessed it, a guy up on the third floor’s scaffolding. Authorities say that when he first saw the police, he threatened to jump. It doesn’t look like he would have gotten far. When police made their way to the top, the suspect said he couldn’t get down so the Houston Fire Department had to bring a ladder.

In the end, police say he didn’t take anything, but he’s been slapped with a trespassing charge. His ego, on the other hand, no doubt took a bigger hit.
