ORC Duo - Mother and son arrested for theft, but son jumps off bridge over Delaware River  A mother and son accused of theft were involved in a dramatic arrest Monday afternoon on the bridge over the Delaware River between Matamoras and Port Jervis. Eastern Pike Regional Police had been investigating a number of thefts from Wal-Mart in Westfall Township and were on the lookout for a red Honda Civic with New York plates that had been captured on video surveillance. The most recent theft involving that vehicle was Wednesday, when a lawn mower was taken from Wal-Mart. Police believe the stolen items were being sold at a local pawn shop. On Monday, the car was stopped on the bridge by two Eastern Pike Regional Police officers about 2 p.m. The driver, Carol Baran, 53, was taken into custody. Her son, Brian Baran, 20, was also being taken into custody when the routine arrest turned into an emergency. A police officer put handcuffs on Brian Baran, securing his hands behind his back. The officer was about to put him in the squad car but Baran broke away and jumped over a barrier that separates the bridge road deck from the sidewalk. He then hurled his body over the bridge railing and jumped into the Delaware River below. The river was fairly low in that area Monday and police Chief Chad Stewart said Baran was lucky he was not killed from the impact. With his wrists in handcuffs behind his back, Baran was struggling in the water. Police immediately called for a river rescue and ambulance. Baran floated downriver the equivalent of three city blocks before he came to shore at Avenue N and turned himself in to Police. (Source
