    Early Tuesday morning, Mexico City police officers prevented a man from jumping off a bridge by treating him to tacos, reported Azteca Noticias.

    The man was also found to be drunk.

    When police officers arrived at the scene, they convinced the man to step off the ledge and eat so he could rethink things with more clarity. So, they took him to Taqueria Corona in the neighborhood of Maximino Ávila Camacho and bought him a variety of tacos.
