101 Freeway In Goleta Briefly Closed By Man Armed With Knife

Posted on Wednesday, April 10, 2013 2:08pm

The 101 Freeway was briefly closed in the Goleta area this afternoon, after law enforcement officers chased down, and arrested a man armed with a knife.

There’s no word on what the man was doing on the freeway just after 1:30 p.m., but it closed the freeway in both directions near Los Carneros Road.

The northbound lanes were quickly reopened, but it took longer to get the southbound side of the freeway reopened. There are no reported injuries, and the name of the man hasn’t been released yet.
