Man Thrown Off Bridge Into Icy River 45 Feet Below After Trying To Break Up A Fight

Connecticut resident Gregory Rottjer, 25, was arrested and charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault and reckless endangerment after throwing a person who attempted to intervene during an argument with his girlfriend off a bridge, according to The Huffington Post.

The incident reportedly occurred around 1 AM on Thanksgiving day at the bridge connecting the cities of Shelton and Derby. Rottjer and his girlfriend, Jennifer Hannum, 22, were fighting verbally about Rottjer’s drinking habits when two bystanders “tried to see if the female was OK and then attempted to walk away,” Detective Richard Bango said. The two had been attempting to de-escalate the situation.

Rottjer and his friend, Matthew Dorso, then began attacking the pair of good samaritans. Rottjer intentionally threw one of the intervening bystanders off the 45-foot bridge. The victim landed in the frigid waters of the Housatonic River. A rescue crew was ultimately able to pull him out of the water.

Man Who Threw His Infant Son Off Bridge Faces Possible Life Sentence

A Connecticut father who threw his son off a 90-foot-high bridge is now facing a possible life in prison after being convicted of the boy’s murder.  The body of the 7-month-old was found two days after he was put into the river.  

According to Boston.com, 23-year-old Tony Moreno will be sentenced this Wednesday. A jury convicted him of murder and risk of injury to a child in February.

Moreno threw his son, Aaden, off the Arrigoni Bridge in Middletown in July 2015. The father also jumped off, but survived. He testified that he accidentally dropped Aaden.

According to the report, Moreno’s relationship with the baby’s mother had become difficult in the months leading up to bridge incident. She said no to his marriage proposal and a custody dispute was settled just days before the son’s death.
