Man gets arrested in the atlantic ocean trying to reach London on his homemade hamster wheel.

Off the coast of South Carolina, a serial explorer making an attempt to cross the Atlantic in a handmade “hydropod” discovered himself in hot water. Reza Baluchi, a resident of Florida and native of Iran, was captured onboard a boat that resembled a large hamster wheel about 70 miles from Georgetown. Baluchi, who stated he was traveling to London, was accused of “conducting a manifestly unsafe voyage,” according to court documents submitted to federal court in Miami.

US Coast Guard officials attempted to board the device, but were rebuffed by the structure, which looked to be kept together by wire and buoys. With a 12-inch knife in hand and a threat to commit suicide if they tried to remove him, Baluchi resisted their efforts. He initially asserted that he had a bomb but afterwards acknowledged that it was a lie.
