Merle Sorenson, 48, said he drove his Hummer into the Columbia River near Quincy, Wash., because he wanted to see just how far he could get from shore while still being able to back up and get out OK. (Bonus reason: Also, he wanted to clean his tires.) Associated Press via News Tribune (Tacoma)

Yes, alcohol was involved. But, on the other hand, having grown up along the Mississippi and being of avid boater extraction this really isn't that uncommon. Don't believe me? Just show up at any boat ramp about 1/2 hour before sunset on Saturday.

Merle Sorenson told deputies that he “was not thinking”

I bet before this happened, he was quoted as saying... hey y'all watch this!
