They say 39-year-old Victoria Jago climbed onto the roof at a home along West Centre St. Police responded to the incident at about 3 a.m. that morning.
At street level, police and other emergency personnel tried coaxing Jago to come down. But she refused and lobbed obscenities at those trying to help.
