Rottjer's friend Matthew Dorso was charged with assault while Rottjer's girlfriend, Jennifer Hannum, was charged with lying to police. Police say Rottjer and Hannum were arguing as they walked across the bridge over the Housatonic River between Derby and Shelton. The victim and his brother asked Hannum if she was OK, which prompted Rottjer and Dorso to start a fight that ended with the victim in the water. It was unclear if the suspects had lawyers.
