At around 11 a.m., police responded to Market and Water Street in reference to an intoxicated man, taking his clothes off, and jumping into the river.
56-year-old Michael Graham was located in the water, clinging to a dock, once police arrived on the scene. EMS and fire crews responded. They were able to get him out safely.
