John Morillo, a 47-year-old from Canada, has apologized for getting drunk and swimming from Canada across the Detroit River just to prove to his buddies that he could. (Is it really that easy to get into this country?) Morillo said what he did was "really stupid" but added that he still wants his buddies to know he did it. He said...
"If I’m going to be in the paper, I’d at least like them to say I actually made it, even though I got in trouble and everything. I gotta pay fines and stuff. But I don’t want it to sound like I didn’t make it, because then my buddies are going to say 'ha, ha, you didn’t make it.' Because that was the whole thing, to show them I could do it."
Windsor authorities have banned Morillo from all waterfront city property and will fine him $5,000 for swimming in a shipping channel.
This guy should be in the Olympics if you ask me.
