Christopher Angelo, a 38-year-old man from Lavallette, New Jersey, was arrested for doing something patriotic. The man climbed the infamous Seaside Heights roller coaster that was placed in the ocean in the wrath Hurricane Sandy to place an American flag on it.

See a photos of the man on-top of the Jet Star below. Julie A.
