I Just Gotta Have another Cigarette

Standoff with man on cellphone tower in northwest Ark. when man drops his cigarette lighter: "The desire for a cigarette apparently led a Huntsville man to end a standoff with Benton County law officers after he dropped his cigarette lighter from the top of a cellphone tower.

Ronald Jeff Grigg was arrested for felony aggravated assault and first-degree terroristic threatening and misdemeanor drunken, insane and disorderly conduct.
[. . . .]
Sheriff Keith Ferguson told the Rogers Morning News that negotiators were called — but that Grigg surrendered after apparently accidentally dropping his lighter and deciding he wanted a cigarette."

Hat tip to John Duke.
