Omaha Police Detain Man Threatening to Jump Off Bridge

omaha-police(AP) — Omaha police have detained a man who threatened to jump off a bridge onto Interstate 80.

Omaha police spokesman James Shade says all the westbound lanes of the interstate at the 36th Street bridge were closed for less than hour Tuesday due to a suicidal party. Traffic was temporarily diverted, but all lanes have been reopened.

Shade says officers were able to talk the man down and secure him from jumping. He is now in custody.

Additional information has not been released.
