Man jumps into river to avoid police
FRANKLIN, Ohio (WKRC) -- A local man jumped into the Great Miami River to escape police and now he could face criminal charges.
Franklin police approached 29-year-old Joshua Wilkinson Friday morning to check on him because he was lying in someone's yard. Officers said he took off for a railroad crossing then went into the fast-moving water.
Fearing for the man's safety, police and firefighters launched boats and found him safe about an hour later.
