Last Night, America’s Cup Traffic Lights Became A Jungle Gym

Someone’s potentially dangerous antics on Newport, RI’s main strip.

We have seen a lot of bizarre acts late night in Newport, but this one pushes the envelope. Overall, we wouldn’t call Wednesday one of Newport’s crazier nights, provided you’re not at The Landing, which has been young Newporters’ guilty pleasure for decades.

Which is why this incident is so odd. A pedicabber sent these photos to us last night and at the time, we couldn’t understand what we were supposed to be looking for.

Then our attention was brought to the guy climbing up the traffic light pole at the intersection of America’s Cup Avenue, Memorial Boulevard and lower Thames Street.

For those of you who might think this is a good idea, just don’t.
