ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque interstate reopened after police say they took into custody a man on an overpass threatening to take his life.

East and westbound lanes of I-40 at Wyoming Boulevard were closed about 2:30 p.m. as officers tried to talk to the man, the Albuquerque Journal reports.

Police say the man was taken into custody about 6 p.m., KQRE-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1sleM77 .)

Police also told KQRE that the same man has threatened to jump off a bridge onto the interstate before.

Police had set up a security perimeter around the scene. They expanded it to Juan Tabo Boulevard because of disruptive motorists.
