Passengers: Captain drank beer, had cocaine and fired a gun during nightmare fishing trip

Passengers say their charter boat captain went on a drunken, drug-infused tirade and threatened to shoot everyone on his boat during a nightmare fishing trip.

10News also obtained a police summary and witness statements that paint a disturbing picture of what should have been a 12-hour fishing excursion Sunday in the Gulf of Mexico.

Sarasota police say passengers aboard the boat told them Captain Mark Bailey, 36, drank rum from the bottle, had multiple beers, got high from cocaine and ended up in an argument with a 15-year-old passenger who reportedly tried to grab his uncle a drink from the captain's pail.

"It was like a movie, unbelievable," said passenger Christopher Giuffre, who was on board with his dad.

Giuffre says Bailey ripped a chain off fellow passenger Jason 'Junior' Rialmo's neck for trying to grab the beer for his uncle.

"I thought at first he was just playing," Rialmo told 10News. "But then I realized he was serious and I was like I canít do that.Ē

1. Well, the cocaine makes sense

Without the cocaine, the alcohol might have made him drowsy.

8. that would have probably made him substantially less aggressive

Would have probably made the tour less stressful... but then they may have never gotten home...

Regardless of the captainís hobbies, it would be good to know if he was effective at his job.

Sarasota charter captain could lose livelihood, freedom

The U.S. Coast Guard confirmed it is investigating the 36-year-old captain of the Double Marker fishing boat after passengers told the Sarasota Police Department that Bailey got drunk and high and threatened to shoot them and dump them overboard during a frightening 18-hour ordeal 60 miles offshore.

Sarasota Police arrested Bailey and charged him with boating under the influence and resisting arrest, but allegations of crimes at sea are being investigated by the Coast Guard.

Additional charges could include armed kidnapping and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, said George Dekle, professor emeritus at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, who reviewed the case at the Herald-Tribuneís request.

In the meantime, Bailey is free after posting $620 bond.
