Default Boater arrested for firing rifle after sunset cruise turns to ‘mutiny’

Marathon, Florida:

A Marathon man was jailed after police say he fired a rifle several times on a sunset boat trip Thursday after an argument broke out.

Tobias Bybee, 38, also hit one person in the throat with the stock of the rifle, police said. Bybee and his four passengers were out fishing and drinking when the violence started. After the shots were fired, one passenger called authorities.

Bybee was met at shore by Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputies, who say Bybee said there had been "a mutiny on board the vessel."

Someone on board had called police while Bybee was driving back to shore. Two guns were found on the vessel.

Bybee, a convicted felon, faces four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, one count aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.

Probably a couple of bilge rats getting into an argument over who won the last debate. Or some boating forum members fighting over what outboard is better a 2 stroke or 4 stroke.

By the story line alone you just knew alcohol was involved. Oh and the boy be bummin with those charges. I don't think he'll be out any time soon. That wasn't a mutiny, self inflicted walk the plank, is more like it.
