A California man pleads guilty to dropping a cruise ship anchor

Do you guys remember the story of a drunken 45 year old California man who went into a control room on Holland's America's Ryndam and released an anchor while the ship was in motion?  Well, the dude did all of that November of 2011 and now he's facing up to 20 years in prison!

Luckily nobody got hurt in his stupid stunt but homeboy could be thinking about pulling anchors for the next 20 years.  I feel that's a little too much (too much tax dollars locking up an idiot) but he should have some type of punishment.   Also lucky was the fact that the cruise ship avoided damage after the 18-ton stern anchor failed to reach the sea floor.   Idiot.
