Pinelklas County Sheriff's Office

According to a report from the Daily Beast, a Florida man who is currently being investigated for taking part in the Jan 6th Capitol riot was taken into custody Saturday night after he and a friend crashed a boat in Pinellas County while drunk.

An arrest report from the sheriff's office states that Paul Rae, 38 , was taken into custody late Saturday after law enforcement et officials were alerted to the crash.

The report states, "On October 2, 2021 at approximately 10:00 p.m., deputies assigned to the Marine Unit responded to a small island in the intercostal waterway near 794 182nd Avenue East. Multiple witnesses reported the crash after the vessel was traveling northbound at high speed. The vessel ran aground on the small island and deputies located it approximately 75 feet from the water line. Also located on the island were Rae and his passenger, both uninjured and showing signs of impairment."

Taken into custody was Rae who, the report notes, "is currently on federal supervised release status due to his indictment in the January 6, 2021 incident at the US Capitol."

Rae was reportedly released early on his own recognizance Sunday morning, and is facing charges of Boating under the Influence.
