Man climbs fence on Gold Star Bridge

New London — A man who climbed the fence on the southbound side of the Gold Star Memorial Bridge late Saturday night came down without incident and was taken to Lawrence + Memorial Hospital for a psychological evaluation, according to city police.

The man’s name was not released and no charges have been filed against him.

Police responded shortly before 10 p.m. to a report of a man on the bridge who appeared to be contemplating suicide.

Last Thursday, the body of a man who jumped from the bridge shortly after noon was recovered several hours later. As this afternoon, state police had not released the man’s name.
