Police Blotter

The Hewitt Ave. Trestle was closed westbound for several hours Tuesday afternoon

Washington State Patrol Troopers arrested a 37-year-old Monroe man and booked him into the Snohomish County jail on suspicion of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after they had to shut down the Hewitt Avenue Trestle Tuesday afternoon. WSP Trooper Keith Leary says the man climbed onto the trestle at the west end over the Snohomish river. He then climbed over the railing and was hanging on the edge of the bridge. Here are a few tweets from Trooper Leary as he updated the situation.

A male ped is on the guardrail on WB SR-2 east of I5.He initially ran from troopers on foot but is talking to us now not sure his intentions…

I am enroute and a negotiator is on scene. Traffic is being diverted. The subject is possibly know to law enforcement and may have a weapon…

Traffic is being diverted for precautionary reasons as we don’t know what the pedestrians intentions are. Will keep you updated…

The exact location of the pedestrian is over the Snohomish River on the westbound lanes of SR-2. Still negotiating…

We are still negotiating…

The negotiation is on going. We want this to end without anyone getting hurt. That said, these take time…

The man climbed back over the rail after some negotiation with the man. He will be booked into the sno county jail. Road open!

Thousands of people were delayed and traffic on the east side of the trestle, highway 2 and highway 9 all backed up for hours. In addition to WSP Troopers, the Everett police patrol boats were in the Snohomish River and negotiators from both Everett and Monroe police departments also aided at the scene.
