WICHITA FALLS, Texas_Traffic in Wichita Falls along several streets and highways were delayed for nearly three hours after a man threatened to jump from an overpass on Saturday. 


Police were called to the Kell freeway Flyover around two Saturday afternoon where a man remained perched at the ledge of the overpass.

It took police two and a half hours to talk the man down. He was taken to a local state hospital for evaluation.

The streets below the overpass and from Highway 287 to West 82 were shut down until the man was taken into police custody.
