NEW YORK (AIP) – Vice President Joseph Biden was arrested Thursday by New York City Police after base jumping from the 86th floor of the Empire State Building, when his parachute strings got tangled in a light post.
“It was fucking awesome,” said Biden, while being led away by police to be booked in. “It was the best rush in the whole fucking world.”
Biden, who has a history of base jumping from tall building around the country, was unrepentant.
“It’s the rush,” said Biden. “There’s nothing else like it this side of cocaine.”
Biden was previously arrested and charged with trespassing after base jumping from the Statue of Liberty.
“I was wearing a Go Pro on that jump,” said Biden. “You ought to see the footage. It still takes my breath away.”
Biden was released after posting a $50 bond.
