Tulsa Tower Standoff: 127 Hours, 40 Minutes [finally over]

UPDATE: After 127 hours and 40 minutes, Tulsa Police finally talked William Sturdivant out of the tower.

A standoff has been ongoing for the past 123 hours, after a man climbed onto the FOX 23 communications tower in Tulsa on Thursday morning. The individual, who has a criminal record and a history of mental illness, has been sitting about 100 feet above the ground for several days.
