SANTA MONICA—Police arrested and hospitalized a man who hung from parking structure No. 7 and painted smiley faces on the structure on Monday.


The man allegedly dangled from the highest floor of the parking structure, screaming and yelling, with a smile painted on his own back.


Many passersby stopped to watch the man, some even encouraging him and cheering him on.


Police closed the street to cars and pedestrians until the man eventually climbed back into the parking structure and was immediately arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism.


The suspect's identity has not been released.
