First he scaled a tall building. Now he is scaling the justice system.
On Sept. 6 Daniel Dale Goodwin dressed himself up as SpiderDan and suction-cupped his way to the top of the 58-story Millennium Tower in San Francisco. Once at the top he was promptly arrested.
Goodwin says he did the climb to show how vulnerable skyscrapers remain to terrorist attacks.
His case made it to court this week. He was arraigned on charges of being a public nuisance, unauthorized entry of a dwelling, and resisting, obstructing or delaying police to which he plead not guilty.
Next up for SpiderDan is a trial which is scheduled for mid-November. He faces up to a year in county jail.
Goodwin has also climbed Chicago's Sears Tower and the north tower of the World Trade Center.
