Buck Johnston remained on top of a drilling rig near Taos, New Mexico, as a tipi went up on Friday in the prayer camp below him. A fellow Warrior climbed up the rig to bring Buck a cellphone charger and was arrested when he came down Friday.
The rig operator threatened to drop the rig with Buck on it and endanger his life. However, the women intervened and said they would rush the rig if this happened, and negotiated.
As of now, Friday night, Buck is continuing his commitment to remain until Sunday. Follow Buck's live broadcasts from on top the rig:
