The Golden Gate Bridge is suing two men who climbed to the top of the of it. A daredevil duo named Peter Kuror and Thomas Rector managed to climb to the top of the 746-foot north tower with just their bare hands. The men then posted videos of their stunt on Instagram.
The bridge is now suing for trespass, nuisance, unjust enrichment, unfair business practices, and unfair competition. The California Highway patrol has also opened a separate criminal investigation against the duo.
Bridge district lawyer Kimon Manolius released a statement about the charges.
“‘Peter Teatime’ and his associate Rector senselessly put the lives of themselves and others in serious jeopardy to exploit the San Francisco Bay Area’s most iconic landmark for their own publicity, expand their own Internet and social media presence, and achieve fame and, relatedly, monetary profit. In media interviews, Kurer has not only candidly admitted to these crimes, but brags about his stunts, as well as his expertise in circumventing sensors, security cameras, and safety mechanisms.”
