Tycoon Gets Fined for Wild Arctic Party

Fireworks, booze ... Sounds like a hell of a good time


An Australian tycoon, Paul McDonald, has been fined £6,300 by Canadian authorities after an alcohol-fuelled party cruise in the Arctic which included serving liquor to a minor and illegally shooting fireworks.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police boarded his 100-foot, seven-stateroom luxury yacht early last month and reportedly seized 200 bottles of alcohol and almost £10,000 worth of illegal fireworks.

He was charged with one count of providing liquor to a minor and one count of being an unauthorised possession of liquor.
