Two Mankato men got a lecture from police after they jumped off a bridge into the Minnesota River.
A passer-by called after the men, ages 21 and 22, jumped from the North Star Bridge on Thursday.
The jumpers say they wore lifejackets and checked the river's depth before leaping. And they had friends in a boat in case one of them got knocked out.
But Mankato police officer Dale Stoltman says the jumpers used bad judgment. Stoltman says he explained to them "about all the resources that got burnt up," including two police officers at the scene plus a state trooper.
Officers say charges are likely - as soon as they can figure out what to charge the jumpers with.
