LONGMEADOW, Mass. (AP) - A man who jumped from a moving car onto a highway in Massachusetts is now facing assault charges.

Massachusetts State Police tell WWLP-TV (https://bit.ly/1NosSxy ) that the 22-year-old Webster resident was in a car on Interstate 91 returning from the Six Flags amusement park with three other people Thursday night.

Police say someone in the car called 911 to complain he was drunk and assaulting a 16-year-old girl sitting next to him in the back seat. The person then told police the man jumped out.

Police later found him on the side of the breakdown lane in Longmeadow.

The man was taken to Baystate Medical Center with minor injuries.

His name was not released. He was charged with domestic assault and battery, witness intimidation and other charges.
