Yacht set adrift overnight, causing it to crash into a dock
Over the weekend, Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos’s yacht was vandalized while moored at a Huron dock in Huron, Ohio.
Someone untied the yacht, setting it adrift overnight. The captain and crew were able to regain control, but not before crashing into a dock.
Local news, The Toledo Blade reports:
A boat owned by the family of U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos was vandalized over the weekend while moored at a Huron dock, according to the Huron Police Department.
The Seaquest was moored at the Huron Boat Basin, 330 Main St., according to a police report. The captain of the 163-foot yacht, worth a reported $40 million, called police at about 6 a.m. Sunday, telling them that he and the crew realized at sunrise that someone had untied Seaquest from the dock, setting it adrift.
The crew eventually got control of the yacht, but not before it struck the dock, causing an estimated $5,000 to $10,000 in damage from large scratches and scrapes, according to the police report.
Officers were searching for surveillance video that may show who untied the yacht.
Most reports, including the one cited above, ramble and border on complaining about DeVos’s wealth.
DeVos travels with beefed up security. US Marshalls conducted a threat assessment and advised increased security, thanks to the inordinate amount of vitriol aimed at the Education Secretary.
As Mike blogged last year, before the uptick in violent and aggravated acts towards Trump’s administration, “The unhinged left is not interested in a debate about policy. They are trying to end this administration and they’re using increasingly dangerous methods to achieve their goal.”DONATE
