Irate man climbs pole, shuts down trolley line

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A dramatic scene and rescue as a man climbs a pole along the trolley tracks Tuesday.

The line at the trolley station in Lemon Grove had to be shut down temporarily as deputies climbed up to try and talk the man down.

The irate man climbed up the pole around 1:00 a.m., after claiming he was attacked. His face bloodied apparently from a beating, officials said.

At one point, the man reached for the "live wires" of the trolley. 

Deputies were able to get him down safely and trolley service resumed.
