BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Police have ticketed two men accused of climbing a 200-foot crane in downtown Boulder, Colorado, at night and parachuting to the street below.

Department spokeswoman Kim Kobel tells the Daily Camera (http://bit.ly/1BaE6xU ) that 24-year-old Scott Murga and 35-year-old Richard Edward Servantes have been cited for second-degree trespassing.

Two officers were on patrol at 2 a.m. Feb. 7 when a man told them someone had fallen and needed help. The officers found Murga injured and lying in the road wearing a parachute.

Dozens of witnesses leaving bars in the area at the time said they saw two men parachute from the crane.
