A distraught man kept police at bay for over 30 minutes last night as he threatened to jump from the Brooklyn Bridge. The drama unfolded shortly after 10:30 p.m. with reports of a man, armed with a knife, threatening to commit suicide. Police responded, and found the man clinging to the outside edge of the bridgework, west of the Brooklyn tower, along the Manhattan-bound lanes of traffic.
