    Jupiter, FL. - While driving across a bridge spanning the Intracoastal Waterway in the 1200 block of North A1A, a man was repeatedly struck by his girlfriend.

    The angry, extremely intoxicated woman then grabbed ahold of the steering wheel and jerked it causing the car to slam into the concrete barrier separating traffic and come to a stop.

    The man said he exited the vehicle and his girlfriend started following him and yelling at him.

    Having had enough of the angry, inebriated, wreck-causing woman, the man jumped off the bridge and swam to a nearby park to escape.

    Several witnesses corroborated the man’s story.

    The woman was arrested, placed in handcuffs and, after being medically cleared, was taken to jail.
