SAVANNAH, GA (March 11, 2013): A 26-year-old Brunswick man was arrested this morning after he climbed aboard a closed river boat and damaged equipment.

William Cole was apprehended by Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Downtown Precinct officers after a witness alerted them about 5 a.m. that a shirtless man had climbed atop the Savannah River Queen and was breaking items off the boat. He has been charged with criminal damage to property.

Cole, who told officers the boat had angered him because of the way it was looking at him, was holding an antenna to the boat’s radio equipment in his hands atop the wheel house when police arrived.

Damage to the boat before he was arrested was estimated at about $20,000.
