A drunken woman has been jailed after she stole a 100-seat ferry in Dartmouth, England, and smashed into other boats while shouting, “I’m Jack Sparrow! I’m a pirate!”
She undid the mooring ropes in the early hours and drifted up a river on the tide, bashing into other boats “like a pinball machine”.
Whelan taunted police, shouting: “What are you going to do now?” and “I believe this is out of your jurisdiction!”
Thirty police, a lifeboat crew, Coastguards and paramedics had to be called.
And when the cops finally arrested her after an hour when the ferry came to rest in calm water, she told them: “We’d have ended up in St Tropez if we hadn’t been caught.”
