A man said he jumped off the Port Clinton drawbridge early Sunday when he was offered $5, a Port Clinton police report said.

Jason Steel, 27, of Toledo was arrested for disorderly conduct and inducing panic.

Witnesses later said he was asking for $5 if he would do the deed, the report said.

Officers and Ottawa County deputies were informed of Steel's alleged act, and followed wet footsteps near Drawbridge Marina that led to the Commodore Inn.

They followed the footsteps to the third floor where they found Steel and his wet clothes, the report said.

Steel was taken to the hospital after he said an officer hurt his shoulder, the report said, and later taken to the Ottawa County jail.
