Police say that the naked, yelling and wildly gesticulating guy who climbed all the way up a tower in downtown Los Angeles and stayed there for over six hours only agreed to come down once his demand for McDonald's hamburgers was met.

The 45-year-old Arizona resident scaled the tower in eastern downtown just before 4 pm last night and stayed put for several hours. At one point, he demanded hamburgers from McDonald's and police obliged, according to the Los Angeles Times. He must have been lovin' it, because once he finished his dinner, he agreed to come down. The man was not injured, but he was brought to a hospital. No charges will be filed against him.

Here's one of many NSFW pictures caught by the crowd the man attracted:
