Then, they spotted a man standing on the bridge?s ledge on the other side of the fence. ?I?m thinking it?s either I help this guy or he?s going to jump,? he later told KMSP. ?I gotta keep this guy entertained somehow because if I wait for police, things could be over.? Anderson kept asking the man questions: Did he want any food? Did the man want to eat something with him? He replied that he wasn?t hungry. ?Do you need any money?? Anderson asked, he recalled to KARE 11. The man said he didn?t. ?Do you want to have a drink with me?? Anderson asked. The man paused. ?Yeah? A beer?? Anderson pressed. ?Maybe,? the man responded. As the officers continued distracting the man, Anderson rushed to the beer truck, grabbing a 12-pack of Coors Light. He brought the case of beer to the bridge?s ledge, opened it, and told the man that if he climbed down from there, the 12-pack was all his. :clap: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
