The Maryland Natural Resources Police rescued a man who jumped off his boat near Thomas Point Lighthouse to relieve himself Wednesday night and was swept away by a current.

Police said the man had a few drinks and needed to go to the bathroom. He decided to throw on a life jacket and jump overboard into the water. It was choppy, however, and the current swept him away.

He was not injured and was not identified.

No charges were filed.
