Have you heard of parkour? It's a popular sport invented in France in the 1920s.
It teaches you how to move through an environment by vaulting, rolling, running, climbing, and jumping.
The sport landed two Upstate men, 18-year-old Kahrell Wright and 21-Year-old Chad Tomberlin behind bars earlier this week in Charleston. The two got into some trouble practicing parkour on the Ravenel Bridge and they both had to be rescued. They have since been charged with disorderly conduct.
They said they used to practice parkour in Falls Park in Greenville, but the city has banned them from downtown. That's why they made the decision two weeks ago to move to Charleston and it seems they have now made a name for themselves in the Low Country.
Kahrell and Chad said they plan on going to college in Charleston this fall. They also plan on going to the city the right way and hopefully get a parkour park built. It's something they hope will encourage Greenville to build one for their friends here.
"I just want to go to Charleston and get it done right. I hope to talk to city leaders and get something figured out," said Tomberlin.
The two were released from jail on a $262 bond each and are expected to be back in court June 11.
