    Wow. I don't see why they were arrested though........... I guess it's against the law to make and drive a Submarine now........... I a;so wonder why the Police was dispatched instead of the Coast Guard, as it's the Coast Guards job to deal with this kind of situation. They are also better equiped.

    I could definatly see where this kind of thing could be a major National Security Issue. I think that it should have been checked out and if they guy's truly just hobbiests then there shouldn't be charges. Im sure the Coast Guard and or the Navy could tell immediatly if there is a danger.

    "...Riley and two friends were taken in for questioning."

    Fucking Irish. As if the whole drinking thing wasn't enough, now we have this burden to bear.
