Yaroslav Kolchin began from the Brooklyn side of the bridge, climbing a support beam and walking toward the top. He managed to take some photos before police directed him down and arrested him, Reuters reported.
NYPD dispatched several teams of officers and a helicopter to guide the pedestrian from his perch at 276 feet. Kolchin now faces charges including criminal trespass and reckless endangerment.
