A man who hung from the 16th-floor balcony of Trump Tower for 13 hours over the weekend has been released from police custody without charges.
Chicago police said the man was hospitalized for a mental evaluation after being safely brought down. A police spokesman said Monday he did not know whether the man had been released from the hospital.
The man began dangling from the 16th floor about 5:30 p.m. Sunday and threatened to kill himself unless he could speak to President Donald Trump and the news media, police said Sunday. Negotiators were unable to get him down until about 7 a.m. Monday.
Police said Tuesday that the man was no longer in custody and that he had not been charged or cited.
