The Washington teen who admits to pushing her friend off a 60-foot bridge now faces a criminal charge.
Taylor Smith, 18, has been charged with reckless endangerment after video of her shoving 16-year-old Jordan Holgerson from the bridge over the Lewis River at Moulton Falls Regional Park near Vancouver on Aug. 7 went viral.
The Clark County Prosecuting Attorney's office says Smith's actions created "a substantial risk of death or serious physical injury," In response to the news, Holgerson said the misdemeanor charge is not enough.
"I would've like to have seen a felony probably because I think that it would show her that what she did was wrong," Holgerson told the NBC affiliate.If convicted of the charge against her, Smith could face up to 364 days in jail.
Here is video of the push.
The push from this 'friend' resulted in 5 broken ribs and a punctured lung. Absolutely terrible.
I want to see her 'in jail'
