The BBC reports that Alison Whelan was sentenced to 112 days in prison after stealing the Dart Princess, a passenger ferry, and crashing it into other boats on the River Dart in Devon, U.K., last September.
Whelan was found to be drunk on the wine Lambrini and high on Deadly Nightshade, a poisonous plant, when she stole the boat.
It took 30 rescuers — police officers, coastguards and ambulance staff —more than an hour to catch Whelan and the boat.
While the boat drifted from its dock, Whelan was heard shouting, “I’m Jack Sparrow!” Kind of like this:
- The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan called the hospital bombing that killed 22 people "a mistake." ›
- Historic flooding has killed 16 people in South Carolina, where rain finally stopped falling on Tuesday. ›
- Takaaki Kajita and Arthur McDonald won the Nobel Prize in physics for their discovery that neutrinos have mass. ›
