Suicide Threat Shuts Down Freeway

Posted: Updated:

Traffic was backed-up for miles on I-44/Kell Fwy. Northbound on Saturday, as police negotiated with a man threatening to jump from the flyover.

Officers successfully talked the man down, after more than two hours of negotiations.

The 35-year-old man was taken to the State Hospital for evaluation, and all roads were re-opened.
