MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) — A man who dangled from an overpass Tuesday afternoon is facing charges.
Marcus Lee Jackson, 33, of Muskegon is charged with a second offense of felony aggravated domestic violence, interfering with electronic communication, resisting police and being a habitual offender.
Authorities say Jackson is a suspect in an assault against a female at a home on Fleming Avenue at Roberts Street in Muskegon. Officers were called to the scene around 12:40 p.m. Tuesday, but Jackson drove off before they arrived.
Police say Jackson stopped near the overpass, got out of his vehicle and climbed over the bridge guardrail.
A portion of southbound US-31 was shut down for part of the afternoon as semi-trucks gathered under the overpass.
Police say they talked Jackson off the bridge and took him to a hospital for a mental evaluation.
On Wednesday, a judge ordered a $20,000 bond for Jackson.
Jackson’s next court date was not scheduled as of Wednesday afternoon.
