Golden Gate Bridge Climber In Custody

Golden Gate Bridge Climber In Custody - The unidentified climber who spent the night at the very top of south tower of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, .has been taken into custody.

Authorities found the climber on Friday morning after briefly closing all lanes of the bridge twice while trying to locate him.

Sgt. Diana McDermott says he is being taken to a psychiatric facility for evaluation.

The man had climbed the tower the previous evening, threatening suicide and telling police he was armed.

Officers responded, but lost track of him in the thick overnight and morning fog that obscured much of the span.
