Michigan Teen Tries To Climb Mount Rushmore
According to the Detroit Free Press, a teen from South Rockwood, Michigan was arrested over the weekend after attempting to climb Mount Rushmore. On Sunday, U.S. Park Rangers caught 19-year-old Zachary Schossau trying to ascend the iconic landmark that features the faces of former U.S. presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. Schossau had to appear in court on Monday and was fined $1,000 for his attempted climb. He also had to pay a $30 court processing fee.
The U.S. Attorney's Office and the National Park Service would like to remind people that climbing the Mount Rushmore National Memorial is illegal and that violators will be prosecuted.
