New York State Man Drives Truck Into Ocean in Florida, Attempting To Surf
While some may long for the warmer temperatures down South, one New York state man had the wrong idea. Usually, when one wants to surf the waves a surfboard of some sort is necessary. Driving a motor vehicle into the water is not only illegal but is also pretty dumb.
But don't tell this guy. he just wanted to catch some waves. Or maybe he's a big fan of the movie Point Break?

WROC says that a Bridgeport, NY man allegedly drove his pickup truck into the ocean in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. The incident happened Tuesday, as the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office says the 49-year-old man drove onto the closed beach without paying tolls.
The Sheriff's Office was happy to share the footage on their Facebook page.
The Sheriff's Office says that the man also drove around a gate with a Do Not Enter sign. So what was this man's excuse when he was apprehended by deputies?
It’s not my fault the truck don’t surf!
The Sheriff’s Office says the New York man was arrested and charged with failing to pay an access fee to bring his vehicle to the beach. WROC says he also was charged with charges of possession of a controlled substance and paraphernalia.
Apparently, no one ever told this guy that salt water is really bad for vehicles.
