Nearly comatose from from her drug and alcohol-induced stupor,Â Alison WhelanÂ thought it would be fun to act out a scene from her favorite move,Â Pirates of the Caribbean.
Setting her sites on a 45-foot docked vessel,Â Whelan Â untied the boat while she screamed, “I’m Jack Sparrow!” as sheÂ began to float upstream.
Whelan and her accomplice, Tristam Locke, had been up on a 2-day binge of alcohol and high on a poisonous plant called “nightshade,” when they decided it would be fun to untie the 100-passenger ferry on the River Dart in Devon, England.
As the crazed woman continued to shout things likeÂ “What are you going to do now?” and “I’m a pirate!” over 30 police, ambulances, and coastguard officials attempted to chase her down, in a mission that would last over an hour.
“The amount of people called out to recover the boat and the damage caused to other vessels made it quite an expensive night,”Â Police Constable Clare Pearson commented.
Authorities eventually caught the duo,Â but not before causing extensive damage to the vessel and surrounding boats. She was sentenced toÂ 112 days in jail for “aggravated vehicle taking.”
Sounds like whatever this woman was on, was some pretty good Sh*t!
