Florida man arrested trying to get to London in floating hamster wheel

Florida man tried to travel to London by crossing Atlantic Ocean in hamster wheel
https://www.fox35orlando.com/news/florida-man-tried-to-get-to-london-by-crossing-atlantic-ocean-in-hamster-wheel-coast-guard
A Florida man is facing federal criminal charges after he attempted to cross the Atlantic Ocean to get to England in a human-sized hamster wheel contraption, officials said.
Ray "Reza" Baluchi was charged with obstruction of a boarding and violation of a captain of the port order, according to a criminal complaint.

On Aug. 26, US Coast Guard officers stopped Baluchi after spotting him on his homemade vessel approximately 70 nautical miles east of Tybee Island, Georgia. It was then that he told officials he was headed to London, court documents said.
Officers deemed his hamster wheel – which was afloat as a result of wiring and buoys – was unsafe for the voyage and ordered him to get into their boat.

Authorities said Baluchi said he was armed with a 12-inch knife and would attempt to kill himself if officers tried to remove him from the wheel.
For days, Coast Guard officers tried to get Baluchi into their boat. At one point, officials said he displayed two knives and threatened to use a bomb to blow himself up, along with the wheel.

      They didn't want him to see what they're hiding in the ocean also when you get on a plane you don't actually "fly" to a different place
      Ask to leave, You will see the crew visibly shaken and tell you that you can't

    This spic has been doing this for years. This is at least his third attempt that I'm aware of.
    Why doesn't he just build a real boat and then switch to his hamster wheel in international waters?

    He was just trying to be the first one to traverse on a hamster wheel.

      It says it right there. Obstruction of boarding and violation of an order from the captain of the port. He also threatened them with knives and claimed he had a bomb onboard. CG was basically like "you're going to get your dumb ass killed you retard" and his response was "not if I kill myself first!"

    You know, I was considering real hard why this would be retarded, but let's assume he packed snacks, water and navigation equipment and his unconventional vessel does not leak air: was it really insane? If I was in rough weather I'd rather be in the unsinkable floating cacoon. It'll take a really long while to get there is all.

      The US is infamous for being the most litigious society in the world. If he got lost or died out there, you know the first thing his next of kin are going to want to know won't be what happened to him or if they'll find him/his remains, but rather who they can sue. That's the sole reason for "because it's not safe" laws.

    This guy is an Iranian immigrant, however we allow him to claim the title of Florida man.
    He's trying to do it because people have crossed the Atlantic in boats but no one has crossed it in a hamster wheel.
