Chicago - Willis Tower security is investigating how a disheveled man 
wandered into an elevator and made it all the way up to the 102nd floor 
before anyone stopped him.

The camera in the Franklin Street lobby of the Willis Tower shows a 
security officer directing people where to go on Monday, May 16, as they 
usually do. But, when the long haired, 42-year-old psychiatric patient 
wandered in, security missed him.

After meandering down several hallways, the man follows an employee with 
a key pass into a freight elevator and makes his way up the Tower.

A spokesman for the Willis Tower says it was while the man was in the 
elevator that he was spotted by security. He was in the building for 16 
minutes, making it all the way up to the 102nd floor. On his way down he 
was arrested on the 32nd floor and charged with misdemeanor trespassing.
