Emergency Protective Custody

Mount Pleasant, South Carolina - On April 18, 2016, at approximately 9:35 p.m., patrol officers responded to the Ravenel Bridge for an individual who was walking in the roadway. When officers made contact with the man, he told officers to stay back or he would jump off of the bridge.

Officers attempted to establish communications with the man but he continued to walk southbound towards East Bay Street. At one point the man stepped over the barrier before returning to the roadway. 

When the individual exited onto East Bay Street, officers placed him into emergency protective custody. He was then transported by EMS to a nearby hospital for treatment.
