Colorado Springs — Around 10 pm Friday night, Colorado Springs officials responded to the I-25 and the Cimarron Bridge after being informed that men were moving back and forth over the bridge.
When the CSPD Crisis Response Team (CRT) arrived, the officer tried to contact the man. As they approached, the man climbed the edge of the bridge and threatened to jump.
Additional police officers responded and I-25 and Cimarron Street were closed for driver safety.
During the five hours, police officers negotiated with the man, making plans to ensure his safety. During the negotiations, the man came down from the edge of the bridge and had enough time for the police to use the tools to safely detain him.
The man was taken to a local hospital where he was admitted to a mental health facility.
