    One man started his morning by scaling a 300-foot radio tower in Wheaton, Maryland.

    The man climbed the radio tower at University Boulevard and Viers Mill Road overnight and climbed back down before 7 a.m. Monday.

    Police were there when he reached the ground, where he was evaluated. He was not injured during his climb or descent. 

    There's no word on any charges he may face, if any.
