Washington woman who shoved friend off bridge pleads guilty

A Washington woman pleaded guilty Monday to pushing her 16-year-old friend from a bridge at a popular swimming area last year.

Taylor Smith, 19,  pleaded guilty to misdemeanor reckless endangerment in Clark County District Court, the Columbian reported. Prosecutors recommended no jail time when Smith is sentenced later this month.

Smith pushed Jordan Holgerson off at Moulton Falls northeast of Vancouver on Aug. 7. Video posted on YouTube that went viral shows Holgerson being pushed.
