David Weaver, of British Columbia, is set to appear in court today after being accused of skinny dipping with sharks at Toronto’s Ripley’s Aquarium.
Late last year, videos surfaced online that reportedly saw Weaver, who took off his clothes, jumped over a security barrier, and dived into the aquarium’s “Dangerous Lagoon.” According to officials, Weaver then spent several minutes swimming in the large tank alongside tiger sharks, moray eels, and sawfish before fleeing the aquarium.
Toronto police also claim that Weaver had assaulted a man two hours earlier, giving the victim serious injuries outside of Medieval Times. Four days later, provincial police arrested Weaver in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
Now, according to CBC, Weaver is charged with one count of assault causing bodily harm, mischief interfering with property, and mischief under $5,000.
