The City of La Porte says they have received several calls about teens jumping from the Waverly Road Bridge and hanging on passing boats.
The City says that not only is this extremely unsafe, but it also violates City ordinance. The Police Department will be working closely with the La Porte County Sheriff’s Office as well as the DNR to catch violators. If caught, a minimum fine of $50 will be issued.
The City also says if you spot jumpers, you can call the police department’s non-emergency line.
