THE BRONX - The man who police say jumped into the tiger den at the Bronx Zoo has been formally arraigned.

David Villalobos was riding the monorail at the zoo in September when he willingly leaped off the train, right into the exhibit. Authorities say he told them he "wanted to be one with the tiger."

Villalobos was released on his own recognizance and is due back in court March 12.
