Justin Casquejo, the teenage daredevil who just can't stop climbing skyscrapers for fun, turned himself into police on Friday after posting pictures of himself dangling from structures across the city.

Casquejo turned himself into the 1st Precinct with his lawyer after posting pictures of himself hanging from various buildings, including some near Columbus Circle, Bryant Park, and Times Square. One of the Instagram posts shows Casquejo and a friend climbing to the roof of a building on a windy, overcast day.


According to NBC New York, Casquejo was released on $15,000 bail. Jeremy Saland, Casquejo's attorney, reportedly called him a "terrific young man with great potential" and suggested that the latest batch of photos weren't taken recently.

"There's no allegation that this happened any time in the recent past. These are old allegations, if true," Saland said. "This young man has followed the rule of law, has not been involved in these buildings any time recently."

An NYPD spokesperson told Gothamist that Casquejo, who is 19 years old, was charged with reckless endangerment and criminal trespassing.

In 2014, then-16-year-old Casquejo snuck past a sleeping security guard and climbed to the top of 1 World Trade Center while it was still under construction. He was sentenced to 23 days of community service because, as a judge reportedly told him, "The court is impressed by your sincerity and remorsefulness. It will now be up to you to prove the court right."


Which like, lol. As someone who only recently escaped the throes of teenhood, I can confirm that teenagers are almost entirely incapable of feeling remorse or sincerity. Anyway, he'll probably get in way more trouble this time, but at least he has a lot of Instagram followers.
