Eunice Rivers, of Jersey City, was on the ferry to NY when she spotted Holt and made a decision to take a video.

In an interview with the Global News, Holt said he made the decision to use the alternative mode of transportation because he wanted to save some money.

"Everybody was just laughing", Ms Rivers told News 4 NY.

"I thought it was quite hilarious", Rivers added.

"I'm not for everybody", he said.

Mother of Murdered Bronx Teen: Mayor De Blasio Never Reached Out
When the gang leader realized the wrong person was killed, he sent a message to Guzman-Feliz's relatives saying he was "sorry". Also scheduled for hearings are Jose Muniz, 21, from Paterson, New Jersey, and Joniki Martinez, 24, from Freeport, New York .

'I'm a starving artist, so I had the board and just kind of popped on and went, ' Holt said.

Scott Holt, 32, switched up his morning commute Thursday by hopping on the board and braving through rough winds and choppy waters to get to Manhattan - all with a brief case in hand. The cop was in a much better mood than the Water Taxi Captain.

The officer began yelling at him, Holt said, and he offered to dock somewhere else but was told to come up. "I had to record it because no one was going to believe me". 'I got a good earful, but I told them, "No, I wasn't trying to die, my bag is just filled with papers for my meeting"'.

"[She] was calling me all sorts of not smart names and that was when I was leaving", he said.

A New Jersey resident, Holt had an important meeting to get to that morning in Manhattan.
