The Associated Press reports that a Florida man threw a bicycle and another man off a bridge. In Daytona Beach, a couple was riding bikes and struck a flat tire as they were going over the Main Street Bridge. They were attacked as they tried to walk over the bridge, say police.

Derrick Goodin, 21, started yelling at Stephanie Ellis about money, then threw her bike off the bridge. Anthony Mascaro tried to stop Goodin, but Goodin soon after threw him over the bridge and into the water 30 feet below.

A policeman was told by Goodin that Mascaro jumped over the bridge. However, the officer was driving over the bridge and videotaped what actually happened.

According to the Daytona Beach News-Journal, Mascaro suffered a cut and bloody eye, and swam to a pylon to escape the water.

Goodin was arrested and charged with aggravated battery charges. He has not commented to the press about the incident.
