Content Creator Causes Over $100,000 in Damage Scaling Las Vegas Sphere

A content creator known as “Pro-life Spiderman,” Maison Des Champs, has caused extensive damage to the Las Vegas Sphere, resulting in over $100,000 in estimated costs, according to police reports. Des Champs, 24, allegedly stomped on numerous lights as he climbed the 366-foot-tall venue, which is wrapped with 58 million lights forming a massive LED screen. The incident occurred earlier this week as part of a stunt to raise funds for a homeless woman named Isabel, who was scheduled for an abortion.

Des Champs filmed the daring feat and urged his followers to donate to his cause, emphasizing the homeless woman’s need for assistance. However, the Sphere’s vice president of security and threat management, Matthew German, informed authorities that the venue’s exterior is too delicate to support the weight of a human. Repair work is typically conducted from the inside to avoid touching the fragile Exosphere.

While the exact number of lights damaged during Des Champs’ climb remains uncertain, venue officials anticipate the cost of repairs to exceed $100,000. Additionally, concerns were raised in the police report regarding the potential leakage of intellectual property from the venue during the live-streamed climb.

Numerous onlookers witnessed Des Champs scaling the Sphere on Tuesday morning, with some tuning in to the live stream. However, it was an engineer stationed inside the venue who first alerted the police. Des Champs allegedly planned to descend the Sphere after reaching the top but was denied permission by law enforcement. They offered a helicopter rescue if he refused to exit through the building. Eventually, the engineer removed one of the light tracks, allowing Des Champs to safely enter the Sphere.

Des Champs now faces charges, including destroying property greater than $5,000 and conspiracy to destroy private property. He is known for his previous stunts climbing skyscrapers to raise funds for anti-abortion causes. Des Champs reportedly claimed to have never been convicted for his actions and expressed confidence that his attorneys would secure his release in this incident as well.

Three others were arrested in connection with the stunt but were released on Thursday with orders to stay away from the Strip corridor and have no contact with Des Champs. They are scheduled to appear in court on February 12, one day after Isabel’s scheduled abortion.

The incident has caused significant damage to the Las Vegas Sphere, raising concerns about the safety and security of such iconic structures.
