HILLCREST - On Tuesday night a man was seen hanging over a bridge in Hillcrest taunting police officers before they used a stun gun to control him.

It happened on Washington Street at 6th Avenue reports ABC 10, high above Highway 163.

Washington Street had to be closed for about an hour on Tuesday night as police negotiated with the aggressive man to get him to come down from the railing.

Police ultimately had to use a stun gun to get him under control once it was safe to do so. 

No word yet on the name of the individual or why he was acting so erratically.
