A person threatened to jump from a freeway sign below Pike onto I-5 Tuesday night in an incident that brought southbound I-5 through downtown Seattle to a standstill.
The person was reported safely down and in police custody around 10:15 PM.
The incident began just before 9:30 PM as a person was reported climbing on sign scaffolding below Pike and emergency vehicles began to stage in the area as traffic was brought to a stop on southbound I-5.
After 45 minutes, the patient was safely on the ground and with police, according to East Precinct radio reports.
I-5 traffic was reopened shortly after.
