FLORIDA MAN: Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of FEAR! Cocaine and Booze on the High Seas! (WTSP)

Browse By

Sarasota police say passengers aboard the boat told them Captain Mark Bailey, 36, drank rum from the bottle, had multiple beers, got high from cocaine and ended up in an argument with a 15-year-old passenger who reportedly tried to grab his uncle a drink from the captain’s pail.

We’ve all been there. Hire a boat, plan to go fishing and the boat captain gets faced and threatens to kill his passengers. The fact that this is another chapter in the never ending adventures of “Florida Man” is icing on the cake.

As it was, Captain Bailey took everyone on a few hour tour. The boat went in circles approx. 30-40 miles off shore as the man allegedly threatened to kill everyone. According to the report a few gunshots and racial slurs ensued. Everybody was unharmed but Captain Bailey was arrested once the boat somehow made it back.

    This incident obviously stemmed from mutinous acts. You just don’t take the captain’s beer unless he offers it. Hopefully the authorities will understand in light of this and the ‘Double Marker’ will see another voyage. Haha
