If you were stuck in traffic waiting to cross the Lions Gate Bridge Thursday morning you can blame a couple bro’s from Washington State.
Vancouver Police have arrests two men in their 20’s after they climbed the bridge just to snap some pics. From the VPD’s website:
Motorist crossing the Lions Gate Bridge around 8:30 a.m. called 9-1-1 after seeing a man wearing a headlamp and carrying a large backpack, climb over the railing and pull himself up the guy-wires to about 50 to 70 feet up the bridge deck.
When officers arrived, they could not see the man from the bridge deck. The Emergency Response Team’s high-angle rescue specialists were deployed to search the enclosed pathways and the guy-wire systems on the bridge.
The two men were taken into police custody and their camera equipment was seized, after they were seen scaling down the guy-wires to the bridge deck.
There is no additional information to share at this time.
Admittedly impressed and a little jealous, both of the guys who just got busted climbing to the top of lions gate bridge and the cops who got to climb up after them. The rebel bridge climbers were busted, 👮cops were nice. #rebelbridgeclimbers #copsonthebrige #goodcops #eyophoto #lionsgatebridgeclimber #vancouver
