SEASIDE HEIGHTS – The man who had reached local celebrity status when he climbed the Jet Star rollercoaster as it sat partially submerged by Superstorm Sandy is doing it again, this time in civil disobedience.

  Christopher Angulo is currently protesting the police by climbing the Skyscraper Ride.

  It was not immediately clear what he was protesting, but Angulo has a long history of skirmishes with the law.

  In what may be the most recent case, according to his own Facebook page, a Bay Head police report states that Angulo threatened to kill a police officer with a pair of scissors during a child custody dispute. Angulo says the police put words in his mouth.

  He was arrested again on March 2, 2020 for allegedly assaulting a cop during a town meeting. Angulo, 45, was arrested for disrupting a Public Meeting, Disorderly Conduct, and Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer.

  On his own Facebook page, Angulo said that the charges were lies.

  He posts a lot of his conflicts with police on social media and on Youtube, including one when he was protesting outside of an Asbury Park restaurant that he said gave him food poisoning.

  After Superstorm Sandy, Angulo had been arrested then for disorderly conduct after mounting an American flag on the coaster.
