Joy-rider Gets Off Lightly

The headline read Joy-rider in boat crash on drug trip. The article, published in The West Australian, 18 January, 2002, tells of a 17-year-old youth who, whilst high on amphetamines, broke into a $400,000 powerboat, which he then proceeded to drive at speed into the Rottnest Island fuelling jetty. Having caused damage to the jetty, he then headed off and ran the boat aground on a nearby reef, causing extensive hull and engine damage to the boat, leaving a repair bill in excess of $135,000!
