DAYTONA BEACH, Florida. Police said a man and a woman who had a flat tire on their bicycle were attacked as they tried to cross the Main Street Bridge in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Police say 21-year-old Derrick Goodin started screaming money at Stephanie Ellis and threw his bike off the bridge. They say Anthony Mascaro tried to intervene, but Goodin threw him “face first” into the water, 30 feet below.
Goodin told the officer that Mascaro jumped.
But the officer who passed through the bridge said that he had witnessed the incident and recorded it on camera.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that Mascaro swam to the pylon after receiving a small cut and a bleeding eye.
Goodin was detained without any commitment due to a deteriorating battery charge and could not be contacted for comment.
