'Spiderman' stopped in his tracks 05:10 PM CST on Tuesday, November 22, 2005 By Amy Tortolani / 11 News http://www.khou.com/topstories/stories/kho...___.4ac24b.html A man who calls himself "Spiderman" was tackled by Houston police officers after trying to climb up One Houston Center Tuesday morning. The suspect is a Frenchman named Robert Alain Philipe aka Alain Robert. He's reportedly scaled skyscrapers around the world -- often with his bare hands. This time, it seems he was a victim of his own publicity stunt. Police they were tipped off after Philipe alerted the media about his plan. Philipe denied that. "I don't know what has happened and how all these people knew I was trying to climb," he said. "What are you doing? Relax," as he handcuffed Philipe. "I haven't commited any crime. No tresspass. No reckless, no disorderly. If you can charge me with something I really want to hear it," Philipe told 11 News as police handcuffed him. He was wearing logos for an online casino that has sponsored several of his climbs. It's the same gambling site that sponsored the infamous Super Bowl streaker who bolted past security at Reliant Stadium a couple of years ago. Investigators tell us they found out about Tuesday's scheme because Philipe alerted the media. "In fact, he did try to scale the side over here on Walker and one of the officers was able to grab him and bring him down," said HPD Lt. D.B. Edwards. "Apparently this guy does this all throughout the world. He wanted some media attention so we were able to come out here and be on the lookout for him." According to his Web site, Philipe has climbed over 60 skyscrapers and landmarks worldwide including the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building, Chicago's Sears Tower and the Sydney Harbor Bridge in Australia. Sources tell 11 News they found drugs on the climber so he could face a felony.
