lisalezah - base jumping in and of itself is not illegal, if you are doing it on private property and have the permission of the property owner.

Totally how I got away from the Spetznaz. Except that was a dam, not a bridge. Cool for him tho.

Holy crap! I know that bridge too, and that`s a *really* short drop for a BASE jump.
Which explains his technique; there`s barely enough room for a pilot chute assist. It`s hard to tell from the view, but it looks like he was starting to inflate the bag in the wind blowing under the bridge, and then somersaulted over the bag to keep it inflated. That`s a pretty badass jump...

Of course he was. A good cop will always remain cool. The ones that get angry shouldn`t be cops.

That was awesome. If it was me id be like "nerp, i m out" and try to hide somewhere on the coast, then again idk how far id get with a parachute. Oh and the Clashs version of the song was better.

Cop was too old to man handle him like he would have liked to.

In short if this guy did not have that gear on, the cop would`ve been well within his duty and right to intervene.

I don`t entirely agree, suicide can ruin other people`s lives especially the ones of those they know. To that end it was obvious this guy wasn`t trying to commit suicide he was BASE jumping and knew what he was doing. Even the officer could see that.

I don`t think a person should be arrested for putting their own life in danger. It`s his life, he can risk it if he wants to.

I`ve driven down Pacific Coast Highway, quite pretty and it even has it`s own theme music.

Oh thanks. I thought it had something to do with it being private property or something thanks for clearing it up :)

He was merely paused by the police.

The legal issues that basejumpers must consider concern permissions to use the object from which the jump is initiated and the area used for landing. Basejumping itself is not illegal.

hey, that`s on Pacific Coast Highway. Little note of advise for anybody who cares, if you`re heading from San Fransisco to L.A., and you have 12 hours to spare, i suggest PCH. Pretty drive, but damn was that a long ride.

@JUGGALETTE, it`s illegal because it`s frakking dangerous. You`re so low that any problems with the chute will kill you.

His splattered body was found moments later and he was identified by his favorite Jimmy Buffet t-shirt.

Soooo....he didn`t get stopped. And was he drunk? He seemed smashed at the beginning of the video.

damnit, I was hoping someone would have already asked why that was illegal so I didn`t have to look like an idiot asking...oh well. Anyone know why it`s illegal? is it becuase it`s private property or something?
