Heroin suspect hurt in jump from jail railing

The Delaware Sheriff’s Department says a suspect who’d rather spend time in the hospital than in jail jumped off a second-story landing in his cell block, landing hard on the concrete below. The man, 23-year-old Jesse Springman was taken to the hospital for treatment of a spine fracture, but won’t stay for long. He’s being returned to jail and will be in a “controlled cell” where he can be closely monitored. Springman was in jail on charges of dealing heroin. His home was raided Tuesday after he allegedly sold the trug to a police informant. His bond is $50,000. He was put on probation for three years for dealing heroin last month.
