That's what we call it in Australia.

Pissed and Fell Overboard. (In Australia Pissed means drunk.)


emrot t1_iyo259l wrote

In America that could mean falling overboard while using the bathroom. Which is also a possibility here.


GetlostMaps t1_iyo2spf wrote

Pissing overboard is every penis-owner's right duty when at sea.

I mean, the fish don't bite until someone pees in the water. Everyone knows that.

It would hurt more if it was a slap on the wrist, because if you were holding it at the time that would make it swing down and hit the balls.

It's interesting - you'd think he wouldn't be embarrassed to say that he was drunk, right? And yet he denies it: "He'd had drinks on the Valor, but was not inebriated, Grimes told ABC. He doesn't remember leaving to find a bathroom, he said."


  • He was ashamed to say that he was blackout drunk.
  • He was so blackout drunk that he has forgotten being blackout drunk.
  • Someone slipped him a roofie.
  • He was doing something else that was really risky (like climbing over the railing) or that he might see as shameful (like trying to commit suicide), so he chose to lie.

Pog1983 t1_iyppoah wrote

He likely hit the water pretty hard. I was in the Coast Guard for 10 years. I helped pulled one or two people out of the water during my time. That fall is pretty long. He may have TBI. Also, all of your other suggestions could be true as well...


useless169 t1_iyo4l3m wrote

He could have been roofied, you are right! That was my first thought anyway.


SternLecture t1_iyrob1g wrote

Same. I just want to believe he was telling the truth about not drinking for some reason.


TheBovineWoodchuck t1_iyuj6ku wrote

>Grimes was at an onboard bar with his sister before walking off

My hunch is that someone was trying to roofie his sister, but put it in his drink by mistake.


gottahavemyvoxpops t1_iyoxgig wrote

Yeah, I'm thinking it's the last option. He was in the water for 15 hours. If he were blackout drunk, the adrenaline would have worn off long before the alcohol did. He would have got sleepy and drowned. Same with the roofie.

I think the suicide or dumb stunt option is more likely. And I don't think it's necessarily that he's ashamed to admit it. It might be that he feels (or has been advised) that there could be legal ramifications for what he did, as far as the rescue operation goes. Or even something as simple as the cruise line banning him from future cruises might be on his mind. (He said he wouldn't mind going on another cruise, since he didn't really get to go on this one!)

So it might be a situation where he doesn't want to say anything so not to put himself in any legal or civil trouble. "I don't recall" is a classic answer from lawyers/politicians under oath, and that's essentially what he's saying here.

He was wanking and fell in when he lost his balance.


Heliolord t1_iysjh4f wrote

Wanking while balancing on a guardrail is the ultimate danger wank.


chris14020 t1_iyp7ia5 wrote

I'd muuuch prefer to say I had a few too many drinks than I was sick of living and fucked it up, or I was completely sober and just clumsy as fuck.


billman71 t1_iys2lsk wrote

The guy fell how far into the water? Then treaded water for around 23 hours... I'm thinking this rules out the likelihood he was plastered drunk or roofied at the time.


Kamata22 t1_iyuxavr wrote

Something else: Dramamine for seasickness + plus alcohol. Lots of cases of people just walking over the side due to Dramamine induced hallucinations. It isn't reported very much.


bronkscottema t1_iynzhz7 wrote

Td:lr he drank too much.


NotQuiteGoodEnougher t1_iyo4p54 wrote

Or, TBH he was suicidal, hit the water and changed his mind. Treaded water for 15 hours, and thought he'd rather not divulge the 'reason'.

Of which I totally respect. I just hope he gets some mental health treatment if necessary.


DirtyReseller t1_iyo5sfz wrote

Or drugged, I was thinking that could also make sense


therealdannyking t1_iyo7n8p wrote

So far we have drunk, suicidal, and drugged. I'll add forcibly thrown overboard to the bingo card.


DirtyReseller t1_iyo7wwa wrote

Ooo nice. How about he was drunk, drank a spiked drink, contemplated suicide, but ultimately was pushed off the ledge after having second thoughts.


you_bastid t1_iyp45yx wrote

Do people get drugged often on cruises? I feel like in a closed environment like that it would be fairly easy to find the culprit.


DirtyReseller t1_iyp4kno wrote

I have no idea, it’s basically a mini city with everyone partying, so I assume it happens sometimes


microm3gas t1_iypkk2g wrote

You go through typical airport security. So could be smuggled I guess, but would think chances are low.


you_bastid t1_iypnvxn wrote

I’m not talking about getting it in, that’s easy. But when you’re in a sealed environment with a certain amount of bars and there’s a traceable history of people getting sick it wouldn’t be too hard to find the source.


FaagenDazs t1_iyo6c3g wrote

His sister said he wasn't inebriated and he didn't remember leaving to go use the restroom. Sounds like he was drugged to me


DFG57 t1_iyo08pi wrote

Well, let's see. You left the BAR and then what happened? Maybe retrace your steps.


charleswj t1_iys4q9d wrote

Extremely drunk people are known for their ability to perform at their physical peak by treading water in the ocean for 15 hours.


Kamwind t1_iyo7mso wrote

I am more interested in why all the sensors that are suppose to detect someone falling overboard did not work.


[deleted] t1_iyo7ic7 wrote

He left his family in the evening, just to go to the bathroom and then he was supposed to come back to them just a few minutes later.

He didn’t.

They didn’t report him missing until 12pm, the next day!


Rosebunse t1_iyok5re wrote

That isn't terribly odd. It is a cruise, they could have thought he was somewhere else partying. Plus, 12pm is the time I suspect a lot of cruise passengers wake up.


EtTuBrutAftershave t1_iynzd12 wrote

Spoiler Alert: He fell


SternLecture t1_iyrom7o wrote

I thought he diffused himself through the steel of the ship.

Son of a bitch did it. The one and a bajillion chance that all the matter in his body managed to pass right through all the matter in the guard rail.

TacoCommand t1_iypogf0 wrote

Is the asterisk like "approximately"?

Is it 15 beers? Or 15 cocktails?


Dorkus_Mallorkus t1_iyponkt wrote

Nope. They cut you off after 15 in any given day. Beers, cocktails whatever, they all count the same. I've seen it happen. Drunk dude was not happy....


TacoCommand t1_iyprby5 wrote

Oh jeez. That's dumb. It just encourages cocktails. And I get it, cocktails are the real money makers. But that just seems like an overall dangerous policy.

15 beers? Wade Bogg used to pound 50 beers and eat a roast chicken!

RIP Wade Boggs. (Note: Wade Biggs is still very much alive, jabronis).

He was thrown overboard by an assassin. He doesn't want any investigation into it, so he's saying he doesn't remember. He fully remembers what happened that night.

Of course he could have been drunk.
