He was on the train tracks near North 1st Street and Component Drive around 1:30 a.m. Thursday. The train stopped for him and that's when he somehow climbed up there.



Crisis negotiators in a cherry picker eventually lured him down with a bag of potato chips.

Lewis, at one point, yelled out that he wanted to mess with everyone's commute.
