According to police, a man and a woman were trying to walk across the Main Street Bridge in Daytona Beach, Florida, with a flat tire when they were attacked.
Derrick Goodin, 21-years-old, started yelling about money at Stephanie Ellis and tossed her bike off the bridge, police said. Anthony Mascaro tried to intervene but was thrown "face-first" into the water, 30 feet below, by Goodin.
Goodin told the police officer that Mascaro jumped but the officer, who was driving across the bridge, witnessed what happened.
Mascaro swam to a pylon and suffered a small cut and bloody eye.
Goodin was held without bond on aggravated battery charges.
