Octavio Alvarado, who fell during chase, out of hospital, in jail
A man who fell about 20 feet into the Schuylkill River while running from police in Reading is out of the hospital.
Octavio Alvarado has moved from a hospital room to a jail cell.
Police said they tried to pull Alvarado over last week because he was driving a stolen SUV.
Alvarado took off and eventually crashed near the campus of Reading Area Community College, police said. He was running from officers when he fell from a storm drain.
Alvarado was charged with assault and related offenses.
