    no description (Published Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2018)

    Traffic came to a halt on one major South Florida highway Tuesday thanks to police activity on an overpass.

    Florida Highway Patrol troopers closed I-75 northbound at Sheridan Street in Broward County shortly after 6 a.m. after reports of a person near the edge of that overpass, possibly trying to attempt suicide.

    Traffic was directed to the off-ramp while officers attempted to control the situation. Eventually, they were able to get that person away from the edge and into custody.

    Traffic was reopened in just after 6:45 a.m.
