    I'm sitting here imagining he sucked down an AL80 in that 25min, and in that moment... a scuba diver finally wished he had his snorkel.

    Steve McQueen model DPV would have gotten him far enough away to evade the law.

    He used one of those Yamadog "pool toy" scooters. I have to say I'm impressed. Pulling a diver for 30 minutes (in icy water no less) was something I was lead to believe couldn't be done by these cheapies.

    "After nearly 30 minutes in the Northern California lake’s frigid waters, [the suspect] emerged and was arrested, authorities said. Medical personnel confirmed his condition was fine, and agents provided him with dry clothes from his wife before taking him to Sacramento."

    Another good example of where diving dry is the better choice at this time of year.

    This raises a question that's sorta lurked in the back of my mind since watching The Sopranos - in these high dollar white collar felony cases, what happens with the spouse/family? Surely they've benefitted from all this money. I wonder 2 things:
    -do the feds take the money back? What if it's been used to buy their house, does the family get kicked out onto the street?
    -what do the circumstances need to be to file charges (aiding and abetting, whatever) against the family, who was obviously complicit?

    Should be up to a judge/jury to decide what happens to the money. I think district (or state) attorneys decide to file charges or not.
