In 2012, Marinkovic, of Chillicothe, was charged with criminal trespassing after he and another man jumped from a 250-foot tower in Jamestown.

Marinkovic, a self-described “professor of adventure,” said at the time that the charge wouldn’t stop him from jumping from a cell tower in Greene County.

On Friday, he landed and was taken to a hospital for a medical issue related to a “pre-existing condition,” according to police.
