Man on ledge at Trump hotel in Vegas taken into custody
LAS VEGAS - Las Vegas police say a man who threatened to jump off a ledge at Trump International hotel apparently over "an unpaid bill" moved off the ledge and was taken into custody.
Police say officers were called Friday night to the hotel near the Las Vegas Strip after the man refused to leave the hotel and climbed up seven or eight stories to a ledge.
Police say that about six hours later, he had moved off the ledge but was still in the area. They took him into custody about 1:15 a.m. Saturday.
Lt. Charles Jenkins told the Las Vegas Review-Journal the man would be taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation.
It wasn't clear if he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
