What, are we in grade 5 now?
Barry Richardson of
A 61-year-old man (who couldn’t swim) and his son were paddling in separate canoes coming back in towards shore. They were about 15 feet from the beach when Barry Richardson decided to jump into the water fully clothed and help the older gentleman out. In the confusion he dumped the canoe over and the gentleman started to panic when he couldn’t touch bottom. Thank goodness he was wearing a properly fitting PFD.
[blockquote]The suspect told police he grabbed the victim's canoe but didn't mean to topple the canoeist into
When the son saw his panicked dad trying to get out of the water, he jumped in and confronted the suspect as he got out of the lake.
"The suspect said it was just a funny prank and offered to buy both a drink," DeSpain said. "Socializing with the man who just sent his father into deep water was not what the son had in mind."
Instead, the son pushed the suspect to the ground and waited for police.[/blockquote]
What a jerk.
