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:
- Donald Trump promised insurance for everyone this weekend, but Senate Republicans say they assume he misspoke.
- President Barack Obama shortened Chelsea Manning's 35-year sentence for leaking documents to WikiLeaks. She'll be freed in May.
- Blue Lies Matter: Video finally proved that police officers lie — and why they get away with it.
- A Toronto man is on a mission to bathe at a different stranger's house every day this month. And so far, so good 🛀
