    Fla. fisherman hooks live missile in Gulf waters

    http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/...nPQkwD98N7MN00

    MADEIRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Florida authorities say a commercial fisherman reeled in a live missile in the Gulf of Mexico and kept it on his boat for 10 days.

    The sheriff's office in Pinellas County says the boat's captain, Rodney Salomon, hooked the air-to-air guided missile 50 miles off the Panhandle town of Panama City. The Air Force and Navy use Gulf waters off the Panhandle for weapons training.

    Salomon had the missile aboard his boat for 10 days before returning Monday to port in Madeira Beach, near St. Petersburg.

    A bomb squad was called in from MacDill Air Force Base and dismantled the missile in an empty parking lot.

    The bomb squad said the missile was very corroded from floating in saltwater for a long time. They said it was live and in a very unstable state.

    With this story taking place in Florida, I'm truly surprised the tale did not end with a hammer and the words "Hey ya'll, watch this!".

    Apparently, this thing was bouncing around on the roof of this guy's boat for the last 10 days.
