Man falls from bridge taking selfie, gets arrested

A Texas man taking a selfie fell from a bridge and then into the hands of law enforcement, according to officials.

Billy Pettice, 38, was arrested on an outstanding burglary warrant after he miraculously survived a fall Friday afternoon from a Galveston causeway, the Galveston County Daily News reported.

Pettice was reportedly snapping photos when he slipped and landed 30 to 50 feet below on the outbound side of the causeway near the Tiki Island exit, according to authorities.

He was rescued by a passing boater and later brought to the University of Texas Medical Branch hospital, where he was treated for several broken ribs, police said.

While the man was hospitalized, police discovered there was an open warrant for his arrest in Louisiana.

Authorities arrested the selfie-taking photographer following his hospital release and plan to extradite him.
