A North Carolina man decided to take a dip in the ocean on Wednesday in an attempt to elude police. Surf City cops spotted illicit drugs and paraphernalia in this guy’s car and he went a swimming as a way to lose the fuzz.
Police didn’t jump into the water after their suspect because they were able to send out a drone to follow the man on his ocean-bound journey. But then…a police chase turns into a rescue mission when they spot a big ‘ole shark is stalking the man like prey.
Somewhere out in the (North Carolina) Atlantic, a large shark swam alongside 20-year-old Zachary Kingsbury who attempted to flee police, but found an even greater predator on his tail. Alright, w
This guy Kingsbury may have an awful few criminal charges to deal with, but the kid is a total beast at swimming. He led that drone on for an hour, unaware of the shark following close behind. All and all, he’s charged with resisting arrest, obstructing an officer, possession of drug paraphernalia, methamphetamine, and possession of marijuana of up to a half an ounce. However, this dude did what Michael Phelps said he’d do and that is race a shark…a REAL F’N shark!
Police started to get really worried “After 60 minutes of flight time, Kingsbury was over 4,000 feet offshore and visual contact was lost. At that point, the operation became a rescue operation,” according to a statement from Surf City Police.
But as police were trying to save Kingsbury, they noticed a shark swimming near the man, drone footage showed.
Police were able to nab Kingsbury about 7:45 p.m., according to the Charlotte Observer.
“I would’ve drowned after 10 minutes…dude’s an animal,” a witness wrote in a Facebook post.

No need to cast undue blame on that shark. The creature had an enormous amount of restraint for not taking a nibble out of that wayward human. Maybe the shark just wanted a friend…
