A man who pleaded no contest in April to a domestic violence charge stemming from allegedly trying to throw his wife off the San Mateo-Howard Bridge in December was sentenced to five years of probation, prosecutors said Friday. 

48-year-old Xavier Jarrell McClinton, of Mill Valley, received credit for 169 days he's already served in jail, according to District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. 

He will be required to go through 104 hours of domestic violence training, remain in therapy and continue to take all medications he's prescribed, Wagstaffe said.

McClinton pleaded no contest in San Mateo County Superior Court in April to felony domestic violence with an enhancement for infliction of great bodily injury and a serious felony allegation. 

Prosecutors said McClinton was driving east on state Highway 92 with his wife on Dec. 13, 2013 when the couple began to argue inside their white Honda Pilot.

Witnesses said the vehicle crashed into a guardrail, and McClinton got out of the car, dragged his wife out of the car and tried to throw her over the side of the bridge. 

Other motorists stopped to help McClinton's wife, and McClinton ended up falling off the bridge and 15 feet into the bay.

McClinton is the owner/operator of Body By X fitness training center in Corte Madera, where according to the gym's website, Xavier has been a personal trainer, an architect of mind, body and soul for more than twenty years —mentoring kids of all ages and assisted them in overcoming their physical and emotional fears, and self-esteem issues over the course of many years.

This is wonderful news. I know Xavier is beloved in our community and we were praying for justice. I hope everyone who comments reads the back story on him. He had gone for mental help several times and was dismissed by the police. This is the answer to prayers from his friends and family. He is a gentle man who was suffering from mental illness.
