A man accused of firing a rifle randomly from his boat at a Jacksonville, Fla., marina, told police a combination of beer and broken heart made him do it.

James Wayland, 51, was locked up this week on $55,000 bail after he allegedly took pot shots from his boat docked at a marine near the Main Street bridge, police said.

The arrest report said Wayland told arresting officers he was upset over his relationship with a woman and had been drowning his sorrows with about 16 beers before he decided to squeeze off a few rounds into the air and in the general direction of the bridge.

Wayland responded to demands for his surrender by making a rude gesture at the officers onshore, but then reconsidered and rowed ashore without his weapon. He was arrested on charges of firing a gun while under the influence, The Florida Times-Union said.
