DAVIE, Fla. -

A man is in custody after three hours of negotiations with law enforcement clogged three major arteries in Broward County.

Authorities closed Florida's Turnpike in both directions and portions of Interstate 595 and State Road 84 Monday morning when an armed man threatened to kill himself.

The incident created a major traffic jam on Veteran's Day. Some motorists were rerouted while others were stuck until the situation was cleared.

No further details were immediately available.
