Jonathon Souid, a 23 year old French tourist, slithered by the NYPD Sunday afternoon and climbed up the Brooklyn Bridge to snap some photos. However, the law did catch up with him and he was arrested and taken to the 84th precinct. He might be charged with criminal trespass:
NYDN: He snapped photos Sunday while standing on the northern-most cable on the Brooklyn side of the iconic span at 12:29 p.m, according to police.
He appeared to train his camera on a locked security gate on the cable blocking trespassers from ascending to the top of the bridge.
Brooklyn beep Eric Adams (hey did he ever give that $5G award to anyone for the capture of the last doofuses to do this?) tells CBS New York that he is backing State Senator Daniel Squadron’s legislation requiring mandatory jail time for anyone trespassing on an NYC landmark.
