Angulo climbed to the top of the ride and hoisted a flag. He said at first he would come down after he secured an attorney to help with the charges.
Shortly after 10 a.m., police escorted Angulo away from the boardwalk after he climbed down from the ride.
'He's having problems with other police departments,' borough police Chief Thomas Boyd told the Asbury Park Press Monday.
Boyd said Angulo had interrupted a council meeting in Angulo's hometown of Lavallette and 'had problems up in Bay Head.'
The state Judiciary's records show dozens of criminal charges against Angulo dating back to 2001, mostly alleged disorderly persons offenses.© Keith Schubert A man climbed to the top of a tower ride at Casino Pier in Seaside Heights to protest “unfair charges” brought against him by local police
Boyd said he spoke with Angulo by cell phone while Angulo was still atop the ride.
'After I talked some sanity into his head — he's not a stupid kid, he's a pretty bright kid, he's not stupid — after I talked to him, he said 'I'll come down,' Boyd said.
Angulo's previous publicity stunts include swimming out to the Sandy-damaged Jet Star roller coaster off Seaside Heights in 2013 and climbing onto a floating ice disk with a pickaxe and chainsaw in Westbrook, Maine in 2019. His effort in 2019 earned him the nickname 'some idiot from New Jersey' in a headline from a local radio station.

Had Angulo not climbed down on his own, Boyd said state troopers were ready to climb up and get him.
Boyd said Angulo would be facing charges of criminal trespass, but that 'We're going to get him help, we're going to get him some mental help.'
