A man drove a car off a San Diego Yacht Club pier around 2:30 a.m. Monday, according to the UT.
When lifeguards, police and Harbor Police units arrived at the scene, they found an Acura SUV about 40 feet from the dock, submerged in 25 feet of water. They also saw a man standing on the dock.
“He was soaking wet but initially he denied being the driver of the car,” said Sgt. Todd Rakos of the Harbor Police. “But that was short-lived.”
After admitting he had been the car’s driver, the unidentified man said he had been depressed and drove into the bay in a suicide attempt. He was taken to County Mental Health on a 72-hour hold.
Although a tow truck pulled the SUV from San Diego Bay, the vehicle was a total loss. Police reported minor damage to the dock, but none of the vessels moored there had been disturbed.
What a pussy. This is how a real man goes out – ed.
