MADISON, Wis. — A pair of UW-Madison students were ticketed for trespassing after being spotted doing pull-ups from a construction crane on W. Washington Avenue Thursday night.

Madison police say officers were called to the 500 block of W. Washington Avenue just after 11 p.m. Thursday for a complaint of two people climbing and hanging on the crane near the intersection of Bassett Street.

When officers got to the scene, both students climbed higher on the crane to try to hide, but eventually came down once the Madison Fire Department arrived.

Both were given tickets for trespassing and were released at the scene.
