Charges Dropped Against Windsor Man Who Climbed Ambassador Bridge


Charges against a Windsor man who climbed the Ambassador Bridge have been withdrawn.

Luke Heney scaled up a suspension cable to the south tower of the bridge to hang a banner promoting his band back on September 14, 2019.

The 31-year-old was arrested by Windsor Police Service when he returned to the ground and was charged with Public Mischief.

He was also ordered to stay 500 ft. from the bridge.

Heney says the Crown withdrew the charges and conditions last month "because there was no malicious intent" and he completed 10 hours of community service.

After avoiding a fine or jail time and having police layout the ways he endangered the public, Heney tells AM800 News he won't be a repeat offender.

"No more bridges for me," added Heney.
