NEW HAVEN — A man who climbed the Christmas tree on the New Haven Green on Wednesday has been arrested, city officials said.

Noel Delgado, 42, of New Haven, was spotted atop the tree around 11:45 a.m. with a flag in his hands, according to a spokeswoman in the mayor’s office. Police officers and firefighters surrounded the tree, and the electricity was shut off.

Police were able to talk him down, and he refused medical attention.

His motives were not clear.
