Television station, KRON-TV news reported that the driver jumped a fence and into a two-story building where he remained for a few hours perched shirtless, barefoot and threatening to jump.
A crowd gathered as police attempted to talk the man down with no luck. Finally, a family member brought the owner’s red tabby cat to the scene and he came off the ledge and was taken into custody without incident.
