Police were notified about 2:40 a.m. Tuesday of a man walking back and forth on the tracks in the West Loop area. Officials say a man was taken into custody about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday.
A negotiator was among those who responded and was trying Tuesday morning to get the man to come down off the tracks. At one point authorities inflated a large air bag below the tracks in case the man jumped.
