SAN FRANCISCO (BCN)– A young girl trying to break up a fight between a driver and passenger in an SUV going through the Bay Bridge toll plaza last Saturday has been found safe.

CHP officials say San Francisco police arrested the woman she was struggling with on suspicion of a later incident involving domestic violence and child abuse.

Officials say the woman had been fighting with the driver of a Chevrolet Blazer as it passed west through the Interstate Highway 80 toll plaza at about 8:30 Saturday night.

The little girl was kneeling in the center console area trying to break up the fight.

After the CHP on Monday released a description of the SUV and occupants, the driver contacted them at about 11:30 p.m. Investigators went to his home, verified the girl was safe and that the woman had been arrested by San Francisco police.

The occupants of the Blazer had committed no crime while in the toll plaza and the man was not arrested.
