Four men were arrested on Monday for a base jumping stunt they performed from the World Trade Center in September, CNN reported.
NYPD Commissioner William Bratton issued a statement detailing the arrests of James Brady, Kyle Hartwell, Marko Markovich, and Andrew Rossig -- all charged with burglary, reckless endangerment, and jumping from a structure.
"These men violated the law and placed themselves, as well as others, in danger," Bratton said. "These arrests should send a message to anyone thinking about misusing a landmark this way."
According to Timothy Parlatore, an attorney representing Rossing, the four men climbed the nation's tallest building on Sept. 30 and parachuted off.
Video footage of the stunt -- which was found last month during a police search of each jumper's home -- shows the men landing on a nearby highway, Parlatore said.
"They were very professional, very controlled. There was nothing haphazard or reckless about it," he said.
Parlatore also said they got into the site through a hole in the fence.
"One of the first things my client said to me was that how surprised he was at how there was no security whatsoever -- how easy it was to just walk right up there in something that the mayor has just recently described as the No. 1 terrorist target in the world," he said.
According to police, Brady was employed as a construction worker at the World Trade Center during the stunt.
Just last week, a 16-year-old New Jersey boy -- who also snuck through the fence -- was arrested for climbing to the top of the tower to take pictures.
