Brooklyn Bridge Selfie-Taker Arrested in Tennessee


A Tennessee man has been arrested after clambering up the Brooklyn Bridge to take a selfie.

David Karnauch of Chattanooga, 21, was arrested as a "fugitive from New York" on endangerment charges, more than a month after he snapped a picture of himself on one of the railings.

At the time, the image led to fears about the safety of the bridge, prompting NYPD official John Miller to play down security concerns.

"That particular spot on the bridge has nothing to do with the structural integrity of the bridge from a terrorism perspective," Miller said.

See the suspect and the original selfie below:



The selfie was the fourth such security breach on the bridge over the past 12 months. Several international tourists have climbed the bridge to take photos, and in July of last year the American flags decorating the bridge were infamously swapped out for bleached white flags.
