A man who reportedly jumped into Bozeman Creek very early Friday morning is safe and sound. He called the police to let them know he was fine. The man jumped in to fetch a flip-flop.

Apparently the man hopped out of the creek on the other side of Mendenhall in downtown after retrieving his shoe.

He told the police that he had no idea that his stunt had been witnessed by others, let alone reported to authorities.

He was unaware that Search & Rescue had been dispatched to search the creek for him in the very early hours of Friday morning.
