The Granville Post of the Ohio State Higway Patrol says a Newark man was admitted to Licking Memorial Hospital for psychiatric evaluation after trying to commit suicide last night.

It happened around 9:15 p.m.

22-year-old Chad Gainer was on the State Route 79 overpass to Interstate 70.

The Granville Post says Buckeye Lake Police Department Officer Melillo grabbed Gainer's shoulder and hoisted him over the bridge railing.

Gainer was then secured and transported to the hospital.
