Man Climbs Brooklyn Bridge, Takes A Stroll, Is Arrested


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.

The incident came only two weeks after two German artists were discovered to have planted white flags atop the Brooklyn Bridge.
