Jumping overboard -- or bridge

You know, I can think of better ways to try to escape from the police. Or, at least, less painful ones. Especially if I were handcuffed.
A man is in the hospital Monday afternoon after escaping from police, then jumping off an Interstate 35 overpass and falling 20 feet to the ground below.

According to San Antonio police Sgt. Jay Vinson, Johnathan Gomez, 20, was handcuffed and had escaped police custody after being arrested on a felony warrant charge of possession of a controlled substance.

Witness Robert Garcia said the man leaped over the bridge over Salado Creek.


The man was taken to SAMMC with a broken back and head injuries.
