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:
- Golf legend Arnold Palmer has died at 87. Known as "The King," his unusual style and charisma changed the game.
- Monday night's presidential debate may be the last hope for environmental activists who want climate in the national conversation.
- US officials have determined al-Qaeda likely influenced suspected New York City bomber Ahmad Khan Rahami.
