Four cops and a Taser gun couldn't take down a deranged civil servant who was hellbent on jumping from the Brooklyn Bridge yesterday.
According to the NY Post, the drama began when a frightened woman called the police after finding an unidentified man masturbating in the seventh-floor ladies' room at 151 West Broadway, where he worked for the state's Department of Social Services.
The man fled the scene, and about an hour later, a flurry of 911 callers said the emotionally disturbed man was walking in traffic on the bridge.
After unsuccessful restraints by police, and escape from a defective taser gun, the man climbed onto the exterior of the bridge, where he stripped naked and jumped 122 feet to his presumed death.[mashshare]
