Drunk tourboat captain tries to swim away from trouble

Tourboat captains are supposed to be a little zany, maybe even a bit edgy if the crowd is right.

But the skipper of Island Safari Tours was apparently very drunk and totally insane when he took a trio of tourists out for a day of sightseeing near Key West.

After driving recklessly, repeatedly tossing passengers from side-to-side of the boat, marine police pulled him over.

An argument ensued before the skipper jumped into the water to escape.
