Man Arrested for Scaling the Brooklyn Bridge

Man Arrested for Scaling the Brooklyn Bridge
Posted August 25th, 2014 @ 5:09am

There’s been another security breach at the Brooklyn Bridge.

Police arrested a 24 year old man after he climbed a suspension beam of the bridge yesterday afternoon.

Yaroslav Kolchin got past security before he was finally noticed around 12:30 p.m.

He’s been charged with reckless endangerment, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.

This comes after two German men were able to get past security and replace two American flags with white ones.  Last week the American flags were returned to U.S. soil.

Earlier this month, a banner was also displayed on the Manhattan Bridge.
