The self-proclaimed “pro-life Spiderman” was arrested again on Tuesday after scaling a building to protest against abortion.
Maison Des Champs was arrested Tuesday by Oklahoma City police atop the Devon Tower, an 844-foot skyscraper in the city’s downtown area.
Earlier in the day, police told locals to avoid the area and closed roads as a precaution when the 22-year-old climbed the massive tower.
Des Champs shared footage of his ascent on an Instagram story on his @prolife.spiderman account and encouraged his followers to donate to letthemlive.org, a pro-life nonprofit.
He shared posts from the organization he appeared to be working with on his rise to raise money for a mother named Riley.
“Maison Des Champs will climb a tower to support Let Them Live Mom, Riley and their 10-week premature baby,” the post reads.
The organization’s website states that donations “help women who want to have an abortion make a choice about life”.
On his Instagram Story, Des Champs panned the camera across the street below, noting that people were gathering but there was “no helicopter yet.”
Des Champs made it to the top of the 50-story building where authorities were waiting for him.
Last month he climbed the Salesforce Tower, California’s tallest skyscraper, also in an anti-abortion protest. The similar stunt also led to his arrest.
The surge came a day after a leaked draft Supreme Court opinion revealed that the Conservative majority of the court intends to overturn the landmark Roe v Wade decision granting state abortion rights.
Despite the timing, Des Champs said the promotion wasn’t about Roe v Wade’s draft opinion.
Days later, he scaled the 721-foot New York Times building in New York City. On his ascension, he chases two anti-abortion banners atop the building. It’s unclear if he was arrested following this stunt.
