D.C. Police Boat Crashes Into Boats As It Responds To Call [VIDEO]
During the Labor Day weekend, Washington D.C. Police, in a boat, were responding to what they thought was a distressed call, but what they did not take into consideration were the other boats around them as they responded to the call. The police vessel struck two boats last Saturday that were docked at the Washington Harbor in Georgetown.
Eyewitnesses say that the police vessel appeared to take a wide turn as it took off, and some believe that the police officer may have been "showing off" as he responded to another call. Luckily, no one was on the boats that were struck at the time, and one owner says that she is confident that the police will pay for repairs.
One of the boats was left with a massive hole on its side and it was partially submerged in the water until Sunday. The boat was lifted to the surface and returned to the dock by Sunday. In any case, I am sure that this is one Labor Day weekend these folks will never forget. On the other hand, I'm sure its one weekend the officer in the boat responding to call would LOVE to forget.
