Sailor Accused Of Getting Drunk And Streaking Around Amusement Park

Mandatory Fun

A 21-year-old sailor assigned to the USS George H.W. Bush was arrested on Friday for allegedly getting hammered and streaking through the quad of the Busch Gardens parking lot.


Police told the Virginian-Pilot that Adrian Gilbert Cardenas was tased after attempting to fight bystanders and at least one police officer in the amusement park's lot, where he was spotted running around naked and trying to break into cars.

Cardenas was first taken to a hospital because he was intoxicated with "alcohol and illegal narcotics," police told the Virginia Gazette.

In video partially taken of the incident, it appears that Cardenas seems pretty blitzed (obvious likely super drunk guy in the nude warning):

Cardenas was charged with felony assault of an officer, indecent exposure, intentional damage, and obstruction of justice, according to Navy Times.

A spokesperson for the Bush did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Task & Purpose.

Two F-35A Lightning II Joint Strike Fighters recently flew a mission in the Middle East in "beast mode," meaning they were loaded up with as much firepower as they could carry.

The F-35s with the 4th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron took off from Al Dhafra Air Base, United Arab Emirates to execute a mission in support of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, Air Forces Central Command revealed. The fifth-generation fighters sacrificed their high-end stealth to fly with a full loadout of weaponry on their wings.

The Pentagon is producing precisely diddly-squat in terms of proof that Iran is behind recent attacks in the Middle East, requiring more U.S. troops be sent to the region.

Adm. Michael Gilday, director of the Joint Staff, said on Friday that the U.S. military is extending the deployment of about 600 troops with four Patriot missile batteries already in the region and sending close to 1,000 other service members to the Middle East in response to an Iranian "campaign" against U.S. forces.
