(KARE) The Minnesota State Patrol released a 13-minute security camera video Monday of a chase on the State Capitol's dome last autumn.
State Patrol says the chase took place on October 21, 2012 around 7:30 p.m. after they received a call that someone was seen climbing on the dome.
According to Lt. Eric Roeske, a man wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and dark pants scaled a wall of the State Capitol and then climbed onto scaffolding and made his way up to the dome.
Roeske says there are safety measures surrounding the construction zone, but the suspect ignored them.
"This is the first time I've ever heard of someone doing this. To me, it's just really stupid. It's dangerous for all parties involved," Roeske said.
