A traffic jam was caused as police blocked off roads and attempted to talk the man down — the rapper’s tour bus was caught within the congestion.
“One officer was approached by a male from a tour van caught up in the traffic congestion, claiming to be part of Drake’s entourage,” Phil Spurgeon, of the City Centre Intergrated Neighbourhood Policing Team, told Manchester Evening News. “He offered for Drake to speak to the male on the bridge, if that would help. The offer was declined with thanks.”
Thankfully, police were able to convince the man to come back to safety, and he was ultimately escorted to hospital for treatment.
Drake is in Europe for the Boy Meets World Tour.
