Around 6:30 am in Venice Beach today, a man tried to escape the cops by swimming in to the ocean. Yes, the ocean. I am marveled at how poorly this was thought out. Cops were called to the scene because the suspect had assaulted multiple people. While fleeing from lifeguards and police he ended up shirtless wading in shallow water. I assume his plan was to swim to Hawaii, but quickly realized he was out of shape. Anyways police walked out and grabbed him, he is now in custody. Just in case you are wondering how far the swim is from Venice to Hawaii it is roughly 2500 miles. Stupid Criminals.
