Nude rooftop show lands local man in jail in the ATL

By Walter Geiger A man who got extensive news coverage in metro Atlanta after he climbed onto the roof of a midtown Atlanta home, stripped and stayed there for over seven hours naked in the rain has been identified by Atlanta police as Jamorris Antron Cole. Cole, 32, lives at 304 Parker Branch Road in Lamar County and is no stranger to local law enforcement. He is a fixture at the local jail and on superior court dockets. Cole allegedly broke out the window of a car with a rock and broke into two residences, bleeding all over the floor at one, before climbing onto the roof and stripping off his clothes at about 5:15 a.m. He had previously tried to enter two other homes. Multiple agencies responded and inflatables were arranged around the home to protect Cole if he fell. He was eventually talked down off the roof by a SWAT team hostage negotiator who was atop a firetruck ladder. He was treated at the scene for a serious laceration to his arm then taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. Cole has been charged with two counts of public indecency and prowling. More charges may be forthcoming. Local law enforcement officers who saw extensive television coverage of the event were sure the naked man was Cole. The Herald Gazette finally confirmed his identity with APD officials on March 20. Cole has been booked into the Lamar County jail 30 times on 65 separate charges since Feb. 11, 2004. Those counts include multiple counts of possession and sale of illegal drugs, assaults, rape and several probation violations.
