An Ohio couple got in trouble last month after they decided to raft down a flood-swollen river without PFD’s on. They compounded the problem when they lied to officials when they were found hours later.
They pleaded guilty to misdemeanour misconduct during an emergency and the judge gave them their choice of punishment. They could either spend 60 days in jail or stand in a tiny swimming pool while wearing life jackets and hand out water safety brochures at a local festival. You can guess which option they choose.
They told the local paper who interviewed them that they had learned their lesson.
