Canadian Man Sorry for Chugging Eight Beers and Swimming to Detroit
LINK


quote:

John Morillo, a 47-year-old Canadian man, apologized today for causing an international incident last night when he drank eight beers and then swam across the Detroit River, just to prove to his friends he could.

Speaking to the Windsor Star after being released from jail this morning, Morillo said in retrospect it was "really stupid" of him to drunkenly swim across the river, but not without adding that he wanted his incredulous buddies to know he'd pulled it off (emphasis ours):



quote:

If I’m going to be in the paper, I’d at least like them to say I actually made it, even though I got in trouble and everything. I gotta pay fines and stuff. But I don’t want it to sound like I didn’t make it, because then my buddies are going to say 'ha, ha, you didn’t make it.' Because that was the whole thing, to show them I could do it.



quote:

Exacerbating everything, Morillo, who was ultimately charged with being intoxicated in public, says his mom is very mad at him. "She just hung up on me," Morillo told the Star. "She said 'you’re just so stupid.'"

I know a guy who did this across the miss. In BR. Ended up 3 miles down river from where he started, but he did it. At night.

He is only sorry because the city is poor.

I remember a kid from Syracuse tried this about twenty years ago.

They still haven't found him.

This is the first person in a long time that has intentionally sneaked into Detroit. Detroit should give him a key to the city.
