JUNEAU (AP) — Juneau police say a 35-foot whale-watching boat was taken out for an unauthorized spin over the weekend.
Witnesses called police at 2:22 a.m. Saturday after seeing two intoxicated people stumble down a dock and get on board the K'eet, a vessel used by Juneau Whale Watching.
Witnesses also say the vessel was doing “doughnuts” in Auke Bay.
Coast Guardsmen responded and took control of the boat. The boarding crew described the man and woman as drunk and naked.
Police say 27-year-old Joshua Carrieri, a crewman on the vessel, was charged with driving while intoxicated and felony vehicle theft.
He also was arrested on a warrant for failure to report to jail on a previous larceny charge.
His companion was not arrested.
