The U.S. Guard crew from Station West have recovered a floating tiki bar hut that was reported stolen near the Florida Keys.
The person aboard the hut showed signs of intoxication and he was taken into custody by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Officials said the the vessel was located near Hawk’s Channel.
Reports say the man was found slumped over the wheel of the charter tiki hut around 8am on Wednesday, saying that he must have had a pretty rough night.
The boat is owned Cruisin’ Tiki Key West, which offers the boats up for charter for BYOB booze cruises.
“A little tiki excitement today which was slightly more eventful than your typical tiki cruise,” the company wrote in a Facebook post. Thankfully ‘The Squeaky Tiki’ was returned with only minimal damage.
