An unidentified man was taken into custody and placed on psychiatric evaluation Wednesday after he threatened to jump from a one-story roof near the intersection of Santa Monica and Cahuenga Boulevards.
The incident began around 9:55am when the man was observed standing on a roof at the location. Police blocked traffic and the fire department used a large inflatable bag to cushion the man’s fall. According to Sgt. Sal Ogaz, with the LAPD’s Hollywood Division, the man came down around 11:20am, but then became aggressive with officers, who fired a beanbag round to subdue him. He was taken into custody and transported to the hospital for an evaluation. Ogaz said the man, who was in his 40s, was not seriously injured.
