Man Drives Stolen Semi Truck Into Waikiki Waters
Driver jumped into ocean to avoid capture
A joy ride through Honolulu ended in the warm waters off of Waikiki Beach.
According to KITV, a man found keys inside of an unattended semi truck and decided to take it for a spin, smashing into parking meters, trees and a cop car as he drove the wrong way down a main thoroughfare.
After driving down pedestrian paths, the truck ended up on the white sands of Waikiki Beach. He then ditched the truck and headed for the ocean.
His swimming was about as strong has his trucking skills, and after over an hour police pulled him from the water. Luckily, the popular beach, which is frequented by tourists and locals alike, was fairly empty at the time. The man was arrested, but currently no charges have been filed.
