Greek Coast Guard officers on the Argosaronic island of Spetses on Friday arrested a 52-year-old speedboat operator who was allegedly conducting dangerous maneuvers with his boat in front of the pier of a hotel on the island's coastline on Thursday night. 

A passerby who noticed the boat alerted the Coast Guard and officers were dispatched to the scene to arrest the 52-year-old at the pier. 

An alcohol test indicated that the man was significantly over the limit and he was released pending his trial.
