BASE Jumper Cited Again After Sustaining Injury

Parachute failed to fully open after jump from TV tower

Anne Arundel County police cited two men after one of them was injured in a jump from the Maryland Public Television tower.

Robert Morgan, 25, of Fairfax, Va., climbed the tower in Crownsville, Md., early Wednesday and was injured when he jumped and his parachute failed to fully open before he hit the ground.

Morgan's lower body was injured, and he was taken to Shock Trauma in Baltimore as a precaution.

He was later issued a criminal citation for trespassing on private property. Last week, Morgan was charged with trespassing after one of his fellow BASE jumpers got stuck after jumping from the WETA tower in Arlington.

A witness, 34-year-old Sean Bullington of Draper, Utah, was taken into custody at the scene and cited for trespassing and providing a false statement to officers, police said.
