"He jumped off the bridge, and when he jumped onto the freeway, apparently he injured the other leg. So, apparently both legs are injured now," Houston Police Department spokesman Sgt. Larry Crowson told KTRK.
Police subdued the man, who was not hit by any cars on the freeway, KHOU reported. Investigators said the man, who was not identified, was on parole for a burglary warrant, according to KTRK.
