TOO FAR?? Man Arrested for Paddleboarding in Malibu BY HIMSELF — Faces Up to Six Months in Jail!

A man was arrested in Malibu on Thursday for paddleboarding in the ocean alone.

Local authorities claim that he was violating social distancing rules, despite being all alone.

In a Facebook post about the incident, the Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station said that “deputies were flagged down by lifeguards regarding a male adult in the water, disobeying lifeguard orders to exit the water.”

The post continued on to claim that the man “remained in the water paddle boarding for approximately 30-40 minutes. LASD boat was brought in from Marina Del Rey Station, once the Sheriff’s boat arrived on scene, the suspect complied and swam to shore.”
