Reported by WPTV and blogged by Automobile Throttle, the sprint digicam on a police automotive caught 48-year-old James Mucciaccio Jr. doing one thing that makes completely zero sense (earlier than the Florida bathtub salts jokes come out, neither medicine nor alcohol had been concerned). The morning of Dec. 26, a police officer bought out of his cruiser and approached a blue Ferrari 360 that was parked on a gated dock on the Palm Seaside Inlet simply off of the Atlantic Ocean.
Based mostly on the soundless video, it seems Mucciaccio and the officer had a civil dialog probably suggesting that the automotive could not be parked there. Mucciaccio then hustled to get into the automotive and appeared to be backing out of the dock. However earlier than he handed the gate, he stopped, then switched out of reverse as evidenced by the blinking lights on the automotive. He then gunned it and drove the Ferrari straight off the dock and into the water. Contemplating the interplay appeared to be fully calm, it is mind-boggling attempting to think about what Mucciaccio was considering, if it was certainly on objective.
And no, there is no such thing as a phrase but as to why precisely he did what he did.
In line with the report, Mucciaccio was not injured and was rescued by a pleasant observer. After the Ferrari sank 30 ft to the underside, it was pulled out utilizing inflatables.
