SARASOTA — An argument between a man and his wife riding a jet ski near Bradenton ended in his arrest — and in the woman getting stranded on a sandbar as Coast Guard and local rescuers looked for her!
The argument? According to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office report, it was over her claim she saw him engaged in sex . . . with another man!
This one proudly bears the label Only in Florida: Eventually, a helicopter located Pamela Doster Sunday at dusk and took her to a local hospital for treatment.
She was found completely nude underneath her life jacket!
Pamela Doster suffered a bump on her head, bruises on her legs and “a large” swollen area on a hip, according to the report.
Hubby Michael Doster, who was celebrating his 50th birthday, was charged with battery. He’s got a court date on Aug. 1.
The police report says both were drunk!
The argument allegedly started when Michael Doster’s wife of two years questioned him about his alleged tryst with another man. The sandbar at Passage Key, where the incident took place, is a well-known cruising area, if you believe gay outdoors websites.
According to the incident report, the argument degenerated with the husband pushing his wife off the Sea-Doo and grabbing her by the hair. She suffered the bruising while repeatedly trying to get back on the watercraft.
Michael Doster left her behind — but eventually called 911 to report his wife lost.
