NEW HAVEN, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) – A 42-year-old Connecticut man has been arrested after climbing a Christmas tree on the New Haven Green.

Noel Delgado had two banners in the tree and used his perch to shout in Spanish about the holidays in the 16-acre park in downtown New Haven near Yale University, CBS 2 reported.

The electricity for the lights was cut as police and firefighters responded to the scene around noon Wednesday.

Officers talked with Delgado and persuaded him to climb down.

Delgado has been charged with breach of peace. Police said he refused medical treatment.
