LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Some tense moments on the UK campus Thursday night when investigators say a man threatened to jump off a parking garage.

As a precaution, police blocked off Transcript Avenue, in front of the garage for more than an hour.

Police say the man never threatened anyone else, and after about an hour and a half, they were able to talk him down.

Firefighters say the man was taken to the hospital as a precaution and was not injured.

Transcript Avenue has since reopened to traffic.
