Guy arrested after climbing flagpole at the Capitol in Salem today.

Posted By on Thu, May 10, 2012 at 6:35 PM

Dude with Cascadia Forest Defenders climbed 80 feet up a flagpole outside the Capitol building in Salem today, hung a banner and camped out for about an hour and a half.

Perry Thompson Graham, 23, from Eugene, was promptly arrested by Oregon State Police after descending the pole voluntarily.

The banner he left behind reads "Schools vs Trees? We want both!"

The legislature is not currently in session and it's not clear exactly to what Perry was referring.

He’s been charged with disorderly conduct, criminal trespass and criminal mischief and booked in the Marion County Jail.
