South Beach street reopened after man making threats hospitalized

Miami Beach police have detained a man who was barricaded inside a South Beach building for hours making threats.

The building, in the 1600 block of Meridian Avenue, was evacuated as a precaution, said police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez. The street was blocked during the hours long event.

“The goal is to hospitalize him,” Rodriguez said. And that’s where police will send the man now that he’s been detained.
