Paging the Admiral!!!!

From KIRO Seattle-


PORT TOWNSEND, Wash. —

A Chimacum man told police he purposefully jumped his car over an embankment and onto a beach in Port Townsend to keep a natural high going after surviving a harrowing day at sea.


Port Townsend police said Joshua Duane Hannum, 35, told officers he had "a couple beers" and "a lot of adrenaline" leading up to the decision to drive the car westbound off the end of Water Street, launching his car over the breakwater about 12 feet to the beach below.

Two officers were called to the scene around 8 a.m. Saturday to find Hannum’s white Subaru station wagon a few feet from the Port Townsend Bay waterline.
The officers later found the owner of the car, Hannum, who had some blood and scratches on his face.


Police said Hammum admitted he was the driver and lone occupant of the car when he intentionally drove it off the road around midnight.

Police said Hannum, who goes by the name Admiral, described a harrowing day at sea near the San Juan Islands in which he and other members of his crew narrowly avoided catastrophe sailing in bad weather. The adrenaline rush

There's a popular bumper sticker in Port Townsend that reads, "We're all here because we're not all there."

"Officers said they advised him to seek counseling regarding his poor decision-making."

Shouldn't every yacht club and marina have a house shrink?

I enjoyed the news thread comments. Mostly what you would expect - "lock the guy up!", etc. Except for one brave soul who opined, "That is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!"

(I think I got the right number of exclamation points.)

HA! What an epic night...

another from the comments:

The Subaru sustained two flat tires, BODY DAMAGE TO THE FRONT and sides and damage to the undercarriage.

Did the front fall off?


Guessing that's an SAer?

"Authorities said Hannum told the officers that in spite of the alcohol, he didn't feel he was drunk at the time."

...and his thoughts on that are completely accurate and objective, I'm sure.
