How much money do you think the city and federal government just spent looking for the last person that jumped into the river? Tens of thousands of dollars were spent between the Coast Guard, SABLE, WFD divers and boat team, WPD officers, etc.
Dang straight she should have been charged. If the DA wants to drop the charges at court then that is up to him, but people need to understand that it is both illegal and dangerous to jump into the Cape Fear River from the Riverwalk. She was 20 and drunk, too, it seems...several laws she was breaking.
