danica hav

Musta been a heck of a night for the master of the Danica Hav before he pulled out of the Swedish port of Varberg.

A few hours later he was found passed out at the wheel of his ship by Danish authorities while the ship sailed around erratically in the Great Belt Strait enroute to Lubeck, Germany.

According to the AFP:

The captain was flown to the Roskilde police station where a blood test, taken eight hours after the arrest, showed 2.18 grams of alcohol per litre.

A judge in Holbaek ordered the captain be kept in custody for breaking maritime security law until a hearing on March 13.
