A spear fisherman was arrested yesterday after a 200-pound giant black sea bass, a protected species, was shot and killed.

The sea bass may have been well-known to local swimmers in La Jolla, authorities said. "People know that fish," said San Diego lifeguard Erik Jones. "He hangs out at 'A' buoy and has been a friend to many swimmers."

Omid Adhami, 34, faces two misdemeanor charges of unlawfully fishing in a reserve and possession of a protected species. If convicted, he faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine for each offense, said state Department of Fish and Game warden Erik Fleet.

Hey tuff,

I bet you just have all the girls after you. Let me ask you something.

Were you born without a heart or did it take your whole life of being a d*#k to chase it away?

Now I feel better...

We need to kill them to thin out their numbers.
