Ooops : Runaway Barge On Mississippi Plows Into Riverboat Casino

24 runaway barges floating down the Mississippi River wrecked havoc (sorta) in Natchez, MS, with two slamming into area bridges and another ramming the Grand Soleil Casino riverboat.

The barge hit the faux-paddlewheel casino strong enough to poke a hole in it and cause the boat to take on water. Fortunately the Grand Soleil is under construction and hasn't opened to guests yet.

Can you imagine being in the middle of a hot night at the casino when a there's a massive BOOOM! jolting the boat to its side, knocking slot machines off their pedestals, people go flying... mayhem ensues?

You can be sure that the outfit that let these barges go free, or most likely a handful of employees who were responsible, are going to get sued to the 9's, fired or thrown into the river.

Insane.
