Las Vegas Police have arrested an activist after he was caught climbing up the Sphere on the Las Vegas strip on Wednesday morning during Super Bowl week. 

Maison Des Champs, known as the “pro-life spiderman,” was apprehended by officers after climbing to the top of the Sphere, one of the Las Vegas Strip’s newest attractions.

“The individual has been taken into custody without further incident,” the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department posted on X, formerly Twitter. 

Des Champs took to his Facebook to post a video of him on the dome and explained that he was doing it to raise money for a homeless pregnant woman.

“As we sit here today, there’s an individual – for a publicity stunt – climbing up to the top of the Sphere. Your first responders are all over there, taking care of it. We know these things are going to happen, and we’re going to deal with them as they come up and make sure we have the safest Super Bowl we’ve ever had,” McMahill said.
