A man from Michigan was arrested on Wednesday night after apparently jumping over a bridge in Detroit in the fashion “Dukes of Hazzard”, according to numerous reports.
The 26-year-old driver of Alan Park was behind the wheel of a Dodge sedan when he accelerated and tried to cross the Fort Street bridge on the Basque at around 7 pm on Wednesday – while he was getting up.
“I looked, I said, ‘No, he’s not,’ bridge operator Andre Locke told Detroit’s WDIV-TV. “During that time, he went, inflated all four tires, and then crashed into the other gate.”

Detroit police cited the incident as something from the Dukes of Hazard in sending the call, while Locke said it was more like the 80s comedy The Blues Brothers, according to the station.
Authorities said the driver managed to get to the other side successfully before “allegedly damaging the security doors” and his own tires, The Detroit News reported. He was unharmed after the jump and it is not clear why he tried.
The unidentified man was later arrested in southwestern Detroit on suspicion of malicious destruction of property worth more than $ 1,000, police said. He was taken into custody in Detroit pending charges, according to the newspaper.
