Propson voluntarily reported to the police four days after the July jump at the Acuity Insurance site. A criminal complaint says he admitted he was the jumper.

An Acuity manager had contacted police after seeing the video on YouTube. It now has tens of thousands of views.

Police say Propson wouldn't identify other people with him. He says he was alone on the crane, but another person can be seen behind him in the video.

The construction contractor says the recertification process for two onsite cranes cost roughly $3,000.
