Associated Press Release

BELLEAIR, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities in the Tampa Bay area are searching for the man who jumped off a bridge after being pulled over for a traffic stop.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office reports the driver of a dark blue 2005 Dodge Durango was stopped Tuesday evening at about 9:30 p.m.

A deputy asked for the man's identification and vehicle information and then went back to his patrol car.

That's when deputies say the suspect exited his SUV, ran to the railing of the Belleair Causeway Bridge, and jumped over. An extensive search for the suspect was conducted but he was not found.

Anyone with information about the suspect's location is asked to call Deputy Jacoby at the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office at 727-582-6200 or Crime Stoppers at 800-873-TIPS.
