The standoff between Tulsa cops and the crazy guy on top of a communications tower entered its fifth day on Monday, passing the 100-hour mark this afternoon. "This situation is unusual," Officer Leland Ashley tells the Tulsa World.
"William," a 25-year-old man from Tulsa, Okla., has been cold chillin' atop a Clear Channel communications tower since 11 a.m. Thursday, taking brief naps and subsisting only on "a Sprite, Dr Pepper, Rooster Booster and a cappuccino," which the police provided to him at his request this morning. Why he's on the tower is unclear, though he's not planning to commit suicide, because—as he tells police—"there's no such thing as suicide." Sounds like, all things considered, he's having a good time?

He shouted down to police officers repeatedly through the night Saturday, telling them he'd rather be on the tower than "down there," and crowing like a rooster as the sun rose.
Family members, the World tells us, "are concerned."
