Fishing Trip From Hell: Charter Captain goes on Drug-Fueled Tirade

I live in a land locked state and when I get a by the ocean I like to rent a charter boat and catch some different kinds of fish. Thankfully I have never had a charter even remotely like this.

According to KARE 11, Passengers say their fishing boat captain went on a drunken, drug-infused tirade. Where he threatened to shoot everyone on his boat during the fishing trip from hell.

The passengers reported to Sarasota police that Captain Mark Bailey, 36, drank rum from the bottle, had multiple beers, got high from cocaine and ended up in an argument with a 15-year-old passenger who reportedly tried to grab his uncle a drink from the captain’s pail. 

The passengers were stuck on this boat for 12 hours with a mad man.

He then flew off the handle and pulled a gun fired it in the air and threatened to shoot everyone aboard. The passengers claim Bailey made a racist comment, suggesting he wanted help to “kill n—-rs.” They also say Bailey suggested popping bullets in each of the people aboard and dumping their “bodies overboard.”

When the boat finally made its way back into Sarasota Bay, Bailey was taken to the Sarasota County Jail, where he was charged with boating under the influence and resisting without violence.
