Since performing her high-flying antics atop the Williamsburg Bridge on Tuesday, 24 year old acrobat Seanna Sharpe, has her feet firmly planted on the ground and her wrists locked in handcuffs.
Sharpe was arrested for her impromptu performance and charged with a felony for reckless endangerment. In an interview with the New York Post she spoke out against the severity of her charges,”
“I’m a professional . . . The cars on the ground were more of a danger than I was,” she said at Rikers Island shortly before her bail was posted. “Statistically, I, as an aerialist, am less likely to die on my apparatus than you are in a taxi.”
Sharpe had been expecting criminal trespassing charges, a misdemeanor, because, “It’s a public bridge. I Googled it,” she told the Post.
She is currently out on bail that, according to one report, was raised by her online supporters in only 3 hours. Now Sharpe and her fans await with baited breath to see whether she will take the tumble or spring back from her latest exploit.
