PIxabay Man flees minor offence by jumping in river

The police stopped the driver for a minor offence on Wednesday morning. But the man didn’t want to speak to the officers and instead leapt over a barrier and into the river.

He initially got away. But police used local media to put out an alert and was soon on his tail. By the afternoon the man was arrested at his home.

It’s still unclear why the man took such drastic measures to escape.
