Not everyday you see a story that goes full Dukes of Hazard or Blues Brothers but today is your lucky day, and it all happened here in Detroit. 

A driver was arrested on Wednesday night after he did something that most people from Detroit have only thought about doing. A man from Detroit high on Whippits decided to take his car and jump the Fort street bridge as it was raising up.

Drawbridge operator Andre Locke was working that night and witnessed this madness go down. “And I looked, and said no he ain’t” said Andre.

Locke hit the emergency stop for the bridge as he saw the guy coming but the bridge jammed and over the car went, landing and blowing out all 4 tires and crashing into a gate on the other side.

Andre said this was a first for him.
