Quincy Man Arrested after Swimming in Aquarium Shark Tank

A Quincy man who jumped into a tank containing a shark at the New England Aquarium Thursday afternoon was arrested.

Stephen Pellegrine, 51, jumped into the large center tank around 6:30 p.m., NECN reports. Aquarium staff immediately demanded that he exit the water, but they say he “swam around for several minutes” before complying.
