Tracey Carleton said her two teenage sons woke her up about 2 a.m. Sunday, saying a drunk man had jack-knifed the neighbor’s Ford Excursion and a 20-foot trailer in their large south Boise yard. The man had wandered around the property, up and down the road and eventually went to sleep in the vehicle’s back seat.None of us is perfect. I personally destroyed an outhouse as part of the drunken celebration after the Activities Banquet my senior year in high school (I was named "All Around Boy"). In the Navy, I managed to avoid doing really stupid things when I was drunk, but I did have some shipmates who weren't so lucky.
Another vehicle and trailer on the Carleton’s property were damaged along with the neighbor’s Excursion and trailer, she said...
...Ada County sheriff’s deputies later identified the man as John McGee. Deputies said McGee had begun drinking at a golf course at about 10 p.m. Saturday. At some point, McGee left the clubhouse on foot, eventually coming upon a parked truck and trailer about three houses down from the Carleton’s.
Deputies arrived at the scene at 3 a.m. and found McGee in the truck. McGee told deputies he was headed to Jackpot, Nev. McGee was taken to the Ada County Jail where he registered a blood alcohol content of .15 on a breath test, nearly twice the legal limit of .08. He was booked into the jail at 4:27 a.m. Sunday.
When I was on the Group staff on the USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) back in 2000, I was standing inport duty while moored at Jebel Ali when we got a call that one of the pilots from the Marine squadron was in jail in Dubai. It turns out that he had stolen a hotel courtesy van and driven it lots of places where he wasn't supposed to, and ended up mooning the Dubai cops who came to arrest him. The upshot was that the Admiral had to come off the golf course to apologize personally to the Chief of Police in order to get him released back to our custody. That resulted in the only Admiral's Mast we had on that deployment, and the guy lost his flight quals, along with the civilian airline job he had lined up for when he was getting out of the Navy in three months. (One of the few other Submarine officers on the carrier got put in hack for the next two port visits because he had signed out as the guy's official "liberty buddy".)
What's the dumbest thing you've ever seen done by a drunken Sailor?
