Why Arrest Someone After They've Climbed A Skyscraper?

Last night, I wrote about a severed-cow-head anti-Hindu protest in Malaysia. In other news from Malaysia, French climber Alain Robert was arrested after climbing to the top of one of the Patronas towers in Kuala Lumpur.

It’s interesting that someone would think to try to climb all the way up the outside of one of the tallest skyscrapers in the world, but the question lingered most persistently in my mind after reading about the crime was: Why bother to arrest someone after they’ve made the climb? To deter all the people waiting to do the same thing?
