OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A man has been arrested after climbing a billboard in southern Omaha with what looked like a rifle.

A security officer spotted the man walking through a parking lot around 7:30 p.m. Thursday. The officer called police as the man scaled a couple of fences before ascending the billboard.

Officers soon arrived, blocked off the street and began talking to the man. He soon descended and was taken into custody without incident.

He was carrying an airsoft model that resembled an AR-15 assault-style weapon.
