17-Year-Old Urban Explorer Arrested For Taking These Photos

The teen who climbed New York’s soon-to-be tallest residential building has been arrested.

Last week, ANIMAL spoke to 17-year-old Demid Lebedev about his daredevil mission to take some sick photos from the top of 432 Park Avenue. Though at the time, all he had to say was “no comment” and his age, he wasn’t difficult to track down through Twitter.

His Instagram profile calls him an “Urban Historian” and the lure of speaking out about his passion was too hard to refuse when the Post and Daily News came asking for interviews.

Lebedev is accused of criminal trespassing and reckless endangerment. “My phone is considered evidence until my case is closed (11/18), so please contact me some other way,” he posted on Instagram a few hours ago, along with a blacked out photo.
