Ship Held to Investigate Possible Intoxication of Captain

Yesterday, the Coast Guard issued an order requiring the cargo vessel STX DAISY to remain at anchor in Port Angeles, Washington. During a routine Coast Guard boarding of the vessel in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the Coast Guard suspected the vessel’s Master showed signs of intoxication. The 587 Panamanian flagged vessel was in route from China to Olympia to load timber. The U.S. Attorney’s office is investigating the incident for possible violation of United States laws.
