NEW YORK — New York City police say a French tourist was taken into custody after climbing the Brooklyn Bridge to take photos.

Police say 23-year-old Yonathan Souid of Esnandes, France, climbed over a fence on the pedestrian walkway just after noon Nov. 16 to reach a cable beam connected to the tower on the Manhattan side of the famed span connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan.

He has been charged with reckless endangerment and criminal trespass.

The daredevil feat comes seven months after two German artists scaled both towers of the Brooklyn Bridge and switched the American flags atop them for white flags.

In August, a Russian tourist was arrested after ascending a cable to the top of one of the towers.
