These people just learned the hard way that the men and women of the Coast Guard aren't just glorified lifeguards. Not even close.
Two people were having battery trouble on a boat off the coast of San Diego on Sunday, so they made a distress call.
Apparently they figured the Coast Guard would come and fix their boat with no questions asked.
Except that the Coast Guard got suspicious, and as they examined the boat, they found more than 1,200 POUNDS of marijuana.
Both of the people on board were arrested.
