Man facing felony charge after spending more than 24 hours on construction crane in Dallas

A man who climbed to the top of a construction crane in Dallas earlier this week — and remained there for more than 24 hours — was booked into the Dallas County Jail late Wednesday.

Paul Jamison, 49, faces one count of felony criminal mischief, according to police.

His bond is set at $10,000, jail records show. It was unclear whether he had an attorney.

Around 7:30 a.m. Monday, officers responded to a call about a man on a crane in the 1000 block of Singleton Boulevard. The man, later identified as Jamison, was roughly 150 feet in the air, according to police.

Dozens of first responders went to the scene, blocking off surrounding streets. The SWAT team was also called to the scene to conduct negotiations in an attempt to get Jamison to voluntarily get off the crane but he refused, police said.

Negotiations continued through the night, pausing at one point because of storms moving through the area.

Around 7:45 a.m. Tuesday, SWAT members were able to get to Jamison in the cab of the crane and take him into custody. He was lowered to the ground and taken to the hospital for treatment, police said.
