I'd say you have f**k the battery.

If it was running after you jumped it I'd suggest the ECU is fine.
Voltmeter was probably going screwy as Alternator was trying to charge a shorted battery.

No promises here. Best to try a battery from someone else before buying a new one.
Alternator could still have suffered some damage.
