Sitting Ducks Seek Refuge in Water

Sitting Ducks Seek Refuge in Water

This is the story of a man from Jersey City who attempted to elude the police by jumping into the bay. Victor M. Casado-Antuna was apprehended by the Bayonne Police, and charged with motor vehicle theft. This is just one of many cases in which someone has tried to flee law enforcement by taking refuge in the water. In most cases, this does not end well for the suspect.

While it may seem like a good idea at the time, trying to escape the police by jumping into the water is usually not a smart move. Not only are you more likely to be apprehended, but you also put yourself in danger of drowning. So, if you're ever being chased by the police, think twice before taking a dip in the nearest body of water.
