Fresno roof jumper pleads no contest to dissuading a witness by force

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The man who you may remember Action News caught on camera jumping from roof to roof to avoid being arrested was back in court Wednesday.

Abel Rodriguez pleaded no contest to dissuading a witness by force. In exchange, all others charges including assault with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest were dropped.

Back in February, Rodriguez led Fresno police on a wild chase after being accused of breaking into a women's home and threatening to kill her.

Rodriguez will be sentenced next month.
