Canadian Tourist Arrested in Manhattan Bridge Climbing Attempt
Chalk this one up to extreme vacationing.
Drew Harrison, 24, decided to have a go at climbing the tower closest to the Brooklyn side of the bridge, right around 5pm. Traffic was at a temporary standstill, and police put the kibosh on the whole stunt pretty quick. No mention of why Harrison’s spider-sense failed to detect authorities upon his ascent.
The irony, of course, is that Harrison could have used some of that bail money to buy a $36 ticket up to the Empire State Building observatory.
