"We sat in the back of a truck driven from Vegas to the dam, then when we got there, I just thought, let's do it, why not, I think I can make this, so Lads said you off," he said. "I got sucked in, paid by, the flow of the dam, so I had to swim hard to make the other side.Then the police were waiting for me at the other end – I was arrested, she gave me fine, she was shocked."
In a fine ticket, the police accused him of "jumping, diving, swimming from the dam or other structures."
In an expression of achievement, he said: "It was amazing to swim … looking at the dam was unrealistic, and I have no fear – never in my life."
