The kicker, as if that wasn’t enough, is that the whole time she was yelling “I’m Jack Sparrow” and “I’m a pirate” while bouncing the ferry off other vessels “like a pinball” and causing thousands of dollars in damages.
Needless to say Whelan was arrested and eventually pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicle taking and sentenced to 122 days in jail.
So where was Whelan heading? Well, when arrested she reportedly shouted that she “would have ended up in St Tropez.”
There’s no doubt Jack Sparrow has a soft spot for the drink, but something tells me he would not approve of this.
