An 18-year-old man jumped off a gambling cruise ship near Port Canaveral on a $15 dare and swam to Jetty Park, deputies said. James Raynor jumped off the Sun Cruz Casino ship at about 4 p.m. after accepting the dare from his friends, according to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.
Raynor was not injured and had not been drinking, deputies said.
“The ship was already at the port. It was moving to the berthing area,” Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Vic DeSantis told Local 6 News partner Florida Today.
The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office said a referral will be sent to the state attorney’s office for a possible misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.
