A Woman Got Drunk & High, Stole a Ferry and Declared “I’m Jack Sparrow”
51-year-old English woman, Alison Whelan, was on a bender, a big one. She had been drinking and taking hallucinogens, when she decided she wanted to be a pirate, a real pirate. So she boarded a 45-foot ferry belonging to Paignton Pleasure Cruises, and well, she stole it, much like a pirate would. She steered the ferry down river, ramming into other boats left and right. When police arrived, Alison started taunting them saying she was out of their juristiction, apparently she thought she was in international waters, but nope! Then she screamed “I’m Jack Sparrow!” as she colided with boats along the river. This went on for 2 hours before they were able to trap the ferry and arrest Alison. At which point she informed them that she was “an orange! Peel me!” She caused tens of thousands of dollars in damages, and police say if the tide stronger, this could have been a deadly joyride.
