Dundalk man gets 18 months for abandoning boat
A Dundalk man was sentenced to 18 months in jail after he failed to remove his derelict boat from Bear Creek in Baltimore County after a judge gave him the chance to do so.
Michael Anthony Danna, 52, was charged in June 2009 with littering more than 500 pounds in state waters after Natural Resources Police saw him trying to sink his 1967 36-foot Chris Craft cabin cruiser on Bear Creek at the Beltway. Last August, District Judge Norman R. Stone III accepted Danna's guilty plea but delayed sentencing until this week so Danna could remove the vessel.
Police said Baltimore County will remove the vessel at an estimated cost of $13,000.
