Police have released a statement saying that a Florida man jumped off a bridge to escape his drunk girlfriend after she crashed the car they were driving on Tuesday.
The man, who remains unidentified was driving across a bridge spanning the Intracoastal Waterway when he was repeatedly struck by his girlfriend. The angry, extremely intoxicated woman then grabbed hold of the steering wheel and jerked it, causing the car to slam into the concrete barrier separating traffic and come to a sudden stop.
Reports indicate that the man said he got out of the vehicle and his girlfriend started following him and yelling at him, police revealed.
Funny enough, the man seemed to have had enough of the angry, inebriated, wreck-causing woman, as the man jumped off the bridge and swam to a nearby park to escape the nerve wrecking incident.
There are several witnesses who corroborated the man’s story. Authorities arrested the woman after she had been medically cleared, she was later on taken to jail.
