Kiwi in jail after sea clash

A Kiwi sailor is in jail in San Francisco after a protest against the America's Cup ended violently at sea.
[...]

The drama unfolded last Sunday morning when the United States Coastguard responded to a distress call from McCormick who claimed to have lost his best friend Spot overboard.

[...]

"He'd said something about an America's Cup protest - and soon after boarding his boat started throwing about five of his own sail bags overboard," Zarwell said.

[...]

Zarwell called police who alerted the Coast Guard, but when armed officers arrived McCormick refused to allow them on board, apparently saying: "This is a peace ship, any attempt to board my vessel is an act of war."

Re: Kiwi in jail after sea clash

Its very sad when people with psychological problems appear in the news.

Its probably the last thing they need.
Police have a difficult time dealing with them too. Theres not a trained mental health negotiator on every boat in the coast guard. Probably none they can even talk to in the situation. Young men holding a .50 cal machine gun wouldnt understand the ravings of a older man having a delusion.

Agreed, it is quite sad. If you check the SA thread discussing this story, apparently one of the posters knows this man, and stated the behavior was "out of character" for him. Radical and sudden behavioral changes can indicate neurological issues. Marin LE is trained to recognize these type of potential problems, as they regularly deal with GGB jumpers. Don't know about the CG and INS. Though, it sounds like the CG was able to de-escalate and subdue the man without anyone getting hurt.
