If you guessed biting the fishing line and stealing the bait of a fisherman, you are a criminal savant. Alexandria Turner, 22, was charged with being the large catch that got away . . . but only briefly.
Not surprisingly, police say that Turner was intoxicated when she swam over to a fishing line and cursed at a fisherman. She allegedly bit off the line and swam off with the lure.
I have always found it a bit unnerving in Florida when there is fishing off of beaches. I have never seen quite as common as I have in Florida. It clearly upsets many swimmers. However, this was off the St. John’s County Pier at 6 p.m. according to Action News Jax.
Police will often try to get suspects to take the bait in interrogation but this is one of the first where the interrogation is on the taking of the bait.
