If the man was arrested after hitting the bridge, wouldn't he be getting a ride home from the police station?

Bring back Lynn. She gave us the facts, 24/7. I often wondered just when she slept. Even kept us up to day with Borough Council Meetings Seems like the Patch is going the way of the Phoenix. Just getting worse all the time.
