I would hope that they are made to pay for the cost of services to rescue them.

The article did say charges are still pending. It was a stupid thing to do, there is no where on that stretch of the river where you can walk across, even in drought conditions.

Most Jeep owners are cocky arrogant azzholes, can you tell by what this 1 tried doing, another perfect example of the people who drive jeeps.

Lucky the police didnt give him a ticket for pollution, or impound it or somthing. He was just trying to off road, i can agree with that, but at that time in that place, that was stupid.

93% of the world is unpaved, i can go to more places than a non 4x4.

.......I hate when newspapers blow stuff out of proportion. They didn't "try to drive across the mohawk", they were driving along the field (partially eroded) and it gave way beneath them, causing them to fall in.
Lmao I know those kids
