SP's MAI - - INTERNAL SECURITY BREACHES -

Po­lice were in­ves­ti­gat­ing a new se­cu­rity breach on New York City’s Brook­lyn Bridge after a 24-year-old scaled the bridge and took pho­tos with his iPhone, au­thor­i­ties said.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened in Au­gust this year. Video showed the man, iden­ti­fied as Yaroslav Kolchin, walk­ing past se­cu­rity and scal­ing the bridge. Avi­a­tion, har­bour and emer­gency ser­vice units rushed to the scene, and the man was taken into cus­tody.

Kolchin faces charges of reck­less en­dan­ger­ment, ob­struc­tion of gov­ern­men­tal ad­min­is­tra­tion, crim­i­nal tres­pass and disor­derly con­duct – hazardous con­di­tion.
