LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Police and firefighters Wednesday worked to bring down a costumed man threatening to jump from a 170 Freeway overpass in the North Hollywood area.

Firefighters responded around 9 a.m. to southbound 170 Freeway overpass at Whitsett Avenue to assist police, according to an LAFD spokesperson.

They arrived on scene and found a man who reports initially indicated was dressed at Batman’s arch-nemesis, wearing a bright purple jumpsuit with a long green wig or blanket over his head, perched atop a fence on the overpass.

After all four lanes of the southbound freeway were shut downs tarting at the Golden State (5)
Freeway, at least one lane had reopened by mid-morning.
