ANCHORMAN ON CRUISESHIP ANSWERS CHARGES IN COURT


OBLIVIOT OF THE WEEK #896: "I guess he thought it was a big joke," said
  attorney Daniel L. Castillo about his client, Rick Ehlert, 45. Ehlert
  is "not denying he did it," Castillo says, but what he did shouldn't be
  considered a crime. He says Ehlert was drunk on a cruise ship headed
  for Tampa, Fla., when he broke into the control room and dropped the
  moving ship's anchor, and then tossed a life buoy overboard -- at 5:25
  a.m. The captain stopped the ship and assembled all passengers and crew
  on deck for a head count. No one was missing. "Everybody was mad at
  him," Castillo said, but "where's the crime?" The crime, federal
  prosecutors say, is attempting to damage the ship -- a statute that was
  strengthened after transportation-related terrorist attacks. Dropping
  anchor on a moving ship could damage it enough to cause it to sink. The
  719-foot MS Ryndam holds 1,260 passengers and 580 crew, and all were
  put in grave danger. Prosecutors are only calling for probation, but
  Castillo is trying to get him off in any case, noting "an alcohol-induced
  reckless act does not necessarily equate to a violation of federal
  criminal statutes." Also, Castillo added, "He's got a lot of money."
  (RC/Tampa Tribune) ...Oh, well, if he's got money, then by all means:
  let him commit "alcohol-induced reckless acts" with impunity.
