Probably waked him while he was fishing.

Not sure of the "extensive damage" to both boats though.

I guess it is an example of too much booze and boating mixed in. He will have a tough time explaining it away in court.

The guy in the skiff is lucky he wasn't shot for that..

When he rammed other boat should have gone full reverse.

NO! That only makes a bad situation worse. He could be capsized and possibly drowned.

Something must have provoked him. Road rage is real. Ive seen soccer moms with kids in the car do VERY crazy things on the road. It's a serious problem these days.

"Something must have provoked him. Road rage is real."

Some folks have left childhood with out ever hearing the word NO!

What ever offends them , even a different opinion , requires your removal from society , or at least a re education camp.

Maybe the crew of the big boat is lucky they were not shot at.


Any further info yet?...like what started it all?


The typical situation is the big boat waked the little guy in the middle of no place, having miles to go around...but didn't.


Still no excuse for the ramming, and possibly not the cause....but one of the most common causes of water rage...that annoys me too.

Come on, EVERYONE has wished they could do that at one time or another after getting waked or some other numbskull incident.

Everyone.

This guy just had enough alcohol and stupidity to actually follow-through.

Wasn't being serious..

Just a bad joke but darwin award for drowning was due for that guy.

To those saying maybe the big boat is at fault the guy in the small boat was the one arrested for DUI and ramming the other boat.. You're responsible for your wake and if you sink a small boat like that it could come back at you.. What the small boat can't do is go on the attack(literally).

This would have been very interesting had it been in Florida and could have resulted in a death.

The guy in the little boat committed the crime of aggravated assault which is a "forcible felony"

From the Florida Statutes - A person is justified in using or threatening to use deadly force if he or she reasonably believes that using or threatening to use such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony. A person who uses or threatens to use deadly force in accordance with this subsection does not have a duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground if the person using or threatening to use the deadly force is not engaged in a criminal activity and is in a place where he or she has a right to be.

I didnít look at it either. Probably had little to do w boats too.
Itís entertainment but I prolly wouldnít be very entertained.
And if you donít edit some of the stuff that comes along youíre a product of all those things.
To be honest it took too long to load up but .......

And the real problem is the cause .. not the affects.
What common thing is it in this country that gives people license to be a cave man?
One person comes to mind but heís just feeding the monster that was already there. Ignorance because the schools have failed? Or attitude because of social media? The failure of the family?

It's complicated, but lack of common courtesy and jealousy are often two big drivers behind 'cave man' reactions.

Ignoring other people's presence and blithely going about your own selfish business no doubt stokes a lot of resentment. As in, cutting people off in traffic (no signaling, etc) or blasting a wake without regard for other boaters.

Then there's simple jealousy, big boat vs little boat.

Throw in a dash of decades worth of stagnant wages and it gets worse.

Just that if you want to understand why the 'caveman' thing happens, there are factors worth understanding. Or not. Some folks are prepared to broaden their understanding, others are not. Clearly both are represented among the members here.
I can't speak for anyone else obviously, but personally I am more than happy to broaden my understanding of this situation, but I prefer forming an opinion based on facts and not making baseless assumptions.

I didn't have much luck finding out Mr. Kennedy's income status. However, as the news report states, his sex offender status is public. Since he was charged with DUI, it sounds like we have a man, intoxicated, with a history of making poor decisions (his sex offense is sex with a person under 13 when he was 35). I think we may have a bad apple on our hands and no matter what Fox News has done to him, he might not be worth having over for Thanksgiving.

No excuse for what this guy did, but Iím betting a video of the ten minutes before this happened would be equally interesting.
