Proud Boy out on bond after Capitol riots is arrested for drunkenly crashing boat

A drunken Florida Proud Boy who's already facing up to five years of prison for allegedly breaking into the Capitol during the January 6th riots was arrested again — this time for crashing his speedboat while "boating under the influence." Cruising at a "high speed" while intoxicated, his joy ride ended after plowing into a small island.

The proud gentleman, Paul Rae, who was one of the first rioters to enter the Capitol, after alpha Proud Boy (and former Marine) Dominic Pezzola smashed a Capitol building window, has been under "federal supervised release while awaiting trial for charges linked to storming the Capitol on Jan. 6." But he didn't let his pride stop him from earning himself a night at Pinella County Jail on Saturday.

From Vice:

The report says that around 10 p.m, multiple witnesses around the intercoastal waterway in Redington Shores, observed a boat traveling northbound at a "high speed." The boat crashed onto a small island, and was discovered by deputies "approximately 75 feet from the water line." Deputies also found Rae and his passenger (who is still unidentified) on the small island. Neither were injured, but both showed "signs of impairment," according to the report. They also included photos showing the boat nestled amid mangroves. 

Rae was booked into the Pinellas County Jail on one count of "boating under influence." Penalties for a so-called "BUI" in Florida vary anywhere between a fine of $500, six months in jail, and five years in prison, according to how drunk the defendant was, whether it was their first conviction, and whether anyone was injured in the process. 

Rae's boating blunder could also have ramifications on his pending federal case and release status. Under the terms of federal supervised release laid out by a judge, Rae is prohibited from violating federal, state, or local law.
