An ambitious Louisiana man was trying to cool off but instead ended up getting arrested and charged for his little adventure. 26-year-old Kevin Wise was the culprit who decided to take a dip in a Bass Pro Shops aquarium.
After swimming with the fishes, Wise attempted to flee the scene but he was a little watered down. He was later arrested by citation and released on a court summons.
The official charge: simple criminal damage to property.
Well worth it.
And lucky for us, the entire incident was captured on camera, because it was all a part of a TikTok stunt.
“I said that if I got 2,000 likes I would jump in the tank,” Wise told KSLA. “I got way more than that and didn’t want to be a liar.”

The Bossier City Police Department received the complaint from Bass Pro Shop which claims they will need to empty and clean the 13,000-gallon aquarium “which features species of fish local to the region.”
