Hancuffed Man Jumps In River - Swims Back To Police
<snip>

CHARLESTON, W.Va. --A man arrested for allegedly breaking into a Cross Lanes store broke free from deputies and jumped into the Kanawha River, only to come back when he apparently realized he would not get far because his hands were handcuffed behind his back.

Deputies waited for him on the riverbank and took him into custody again, according to a criminal complaint filed by Kanawha County Sheriff's Deputy J.R. Powell.

David Douglas Griffy II, 23, of Cross Lanes was arrested around midnight Sunday. Police believe he smashed the Dollar General store window with a tire tool so another man could steal cold medicine used to make methamphetamine.

He was charged with breaking and entering and fleeing deputies, both felonies. He was being held in the South Central Regional Jail on Tuesday on a $45,000 bond.

2. At least he's not risking the "Grand" prefix in front of any of his crimes

4. HEY! I used to manage one of those.
Well, assistant manager.
We had things in there all the way up to $35! :P

Highlight below to see how well they pay their assistant managers (in the mid 90's anyways)

A whopping $5.25 an hour :wow:
