SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. — Police have apprehended a man who apparently unfurled an American flag as he climbed the New Jersey roller coaster that was swept into the ocean during Superstorm Sandy.

The man walked from the top of the coaster and hopped into a police boat on Tuesday. He was handcuffed, walked through the surf and escorted to a police car on the beach in Seaside Heights.

Christopher Angelo, 38, told News 12-New Jersey he wanted to raise awareness for shore recovery.

The remnants of the Jet Star Roller Coaster have become one of the iconic images of the storm.
