Von Miller will not be Charged for the Hammerhead He Caught

Former SuperBowl MVP Von Miller got in some hot water a while back for a photo he posted on social media of a large, bloodied great hammerhead he had caught. It was recently revealed that the owner of the boat was charged with an infraction for failing to have the proper permit, and for failing to use best practices in releasing the animal. Sounds like they went with a non-criminal infraction by NOAA, as opposed to a misdemeanor under state law. That means the violation is more like a speeding ticket, instead of criminal, albeit an expensive one, as they carry a $2000 penalty. I was right when I speculated last year that it was the captain’s responsibility for the way the animal was caught and released.
