Musician James Taylor, not to be confused with the famous guitarist, attempted to end his life by jumping from the Verrazano Bridge.
Taylor, 24, moved here from Philadelphia to pursue music, but has not had any luck. Thursday evening, he was kicked out of his friend’s home and then got into an argument with his girlfriend, who told him to “jump off a bridge.” He took her advice.
He walked the lower level of the bridge with his saxophone case in hand. Drivers who saw him immediately called 9-1-1 to report a man with a suspicious package.
“He said he was trying to make his girlfriend happy because she told him to jump off a bridge,” a source said to the New York Daily News.
Police caught up with him and took him into custody.
