Malden crime suspect tries jumping off Tobin, fails

Traffic across the Tobin Bridge came to a halt around 10 a.m. when a man being pursued by Chelsea Police jumped out of a livery car, went to the side of the bridge and jumped.

Ted Pendergast reports he got caught in safety netting set up for the bridge repainting project. He'd brought a knife with him and tried cutting through the netting, but first responders managed to get to him before he could. They "packaged" him and put him in an ambulance for transport to a nearby hospital.

WBZ reports the man, from Everett, was wanted for a domestic assault in Malden.
