Maybe they just wanted to chill.

Authorities have arrested an alleged tiki bar pirate accused of making off with a floating hut in the Florida Keys on Wednesday.

The U.S. Coast Guard said that wildlife officers arrested an allegedly intoxicated person in a stolen “tiki hut boat” near Hawk’s Channel.

“The person aboard showed signs of intoxication and was taken into custody by @MyFWC,” the Coast Guard tweeted, tagging Florida’s Fish and Wildlife Commission. “Don’t drink and boat!”

It’s not the first time that a floating tiki bar has surfaced in connection with a bizarre headline, either.

A group of priests on a floating bar saved a struggling kayaker on New York’s Lake George last September. Members of the Paulist Fathers had gone to the lake for a retreat and were passing by on a tiki tour when they came across the victim, Jimmy MacDonald, struggling to stay afloat in choppy water.
