Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time: Drunk Boater Jumps Ship To Evade Cops
A man suspected of boating under the influence made a bad choice when he decided to flee law enforcement.
According to Newser, Oregon resident Robert Callahan jumped into the waters of Lake Shasta, rather than taking a sobriety test.
He made it about 50 yards before asking a deputy to come pluck him out of the California lake.
Once on the patrol boat, the 31-year-old was shown to have a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.29%.
Callahan was booked into Shasta County Jail, as was the boat's owner. He was arrested for being too drunk to operate the watercraft.
