Cuffed Man Jumps in River, Swims Back CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- David Douglas Griffy II's alleged escape from authorities seemed to be going well when he broke free from deputies and jumped into the Kanawha River. But deputies weren't too worried: Griffy was still handcuffed behind his back. Authorities waited for him on the riverbank and took him into custody again. Police believe Griffy, 23, smashed a 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.
