Awesome Coast Guard Boat Chase!
Drama on the high seas was caught on tape by the US Coast Guard. A boat overloaded with Cubans being smuggled into the United States tried to ram a Coast Guard vessel in rough seas. The 36-foot boat refused to stop when the Coast Guard tried to intercept it. The Coast Guard then fire two shots into the vessel's engines to disable it. The boat was found to be carrying 31 Cubans and three people authorities said were smugglers. (2006)
