Shocking explanation: Thousand Oaks man reportedly said he was "drunk" at the time.

Well, duh!

That means he didn't do anything illegal. You can't hold someone accountable for something they do when they're drunk. That's my defense and I'm sticking to it.

"The anchor's away!"

Al Czervik lives!

"That means he didn't do anything illegal. You can't hold someone accountable for something they do when they're drunk. That's my defense and I'm sticking to it."

i've actually heard of that being used in a courtroom - didn't work, though.

also, where i grew up "dropping anchor" was a euphemism for making dooty which is of course what i immediately thought of when i read the headline...

"Whatsh thish big red button, do, anyway?"

Beat me to it, KJP. I was just about to ask about Judge Smails' reaction.

What a drag, man.

Apparently, Mr. Ehlert wasn't very alert.

Al Czervik: Hey, Smails! My dinghy's bigger than your whole boat!

Don't let him anywhere near the Pentagon. In fact, he should be restricted to West of the Mississippi.
Wait, where are our missile controls, again?

Hey, that's my neighbor...I can visit him in prison.

Look, he was on vacation, drunk, and thought he would wet a hook and do some fishin'. What's the problem, officer?

If the ship was moving, it was probably in water deeper than the length of the anchor chain, so why release it?

He can try telling the judge he was fishing for sea monsters with a really big hook.

More fun than pulling the emergency brake cord on a train.
