The embarrassing incident took place at around 11:30 pm at the Miami Beach Marina. According to police, the man didn’t get far before ramming the luxury yacht into a concrete pier and several other boats before finally ditching it. The boat began taking on water shortly after, despite the efforts of authorities.
One witness claims that the thief, who is being pursued by the Coast Guard and remains at large, seems to have been intoxicated or otherwise impaired.
He allegedly kept piloting the boat back and forth, ramming into boats in the process, before screaming for help and jumping into the water.
