(WXYZ) — A man who captured jaw-dropping photos atop Detroit's Ambassador Bridge is now facing charges for similar acts in Ohio, according to court documents.

Isaac Wright, known as DrifterShoots on Instagram, is accused of breaking and entering The American Financial Group building in Cincinnati, Ohio in November 2020. He now faces burglary charges for allegedly prying and picking locks to get into the building.

Back in September 2020, 7 Action News caught up with Wright after he posted photos while sitting just underneath the glowing Ambassador Bridge marquee, raising security concerns.

“My motto is to the moon and never back," the artistic daredevil said.

Now the thrill-seeker is facing charges out of Ohio's Hamilton County for similar acts.

“I love my art and I try to keep it 100 percent pure and authentic and I want people to know it comes from a good place and a good heart,” he said.

Wright told 7 Action News back in September that he understands the dangers of climbing these buildings and bridges, but says it’s his art and he will continue to try and inspire others through it.
