Some dumb dumb in Malibu decided to disobey lifeguard’s orders to get out of the water so an L.A. County patrol boat was dispatched to the scene to drive the point home. The paddleboarder eventually swam to shore where he was promptly cuffed for not complying to lifeguard warnings and violating Governor Gavin Newsom’s stay-at-home order, which is a crime. The paddleboarder now faces a max penalty of 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Here’s a better clip of the Sherrif’s boat:
