Exposed legal Clooney boat license? (ANSA) - Venice, AUGUST 29 - A Call to check if George Clooney is in possession of a boating license that allows him to drive a boat in the lagoon is contained in a complaint filed by a Venetian lawyer in the light of photos depicting the 'actor to star in Gravity, the opening film at the Venice film Festival in Venice, with his hands on the helm of the vessel used. For clarity will likely be convened by the holder of the municipal police speedboat.

I think he was just concerned as there have been accidents lately. This isn't the first time he has taken the helm...didn't he do it a few years ago with CC and RG?

George Clooney in hot water over Venice stunt

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

George Clooney sent hearts fluttering as he arrived at the Venice film festival in typical style this week, dressed in a white t-shirt emblazoned with the logo of his own brand of tequila and nonchalantly steering a water taxi to his luxury hotel.

But one Venetian resident was not impressed, and has demanded that city police take action against the star unless he is able to produce the required licence for navigating on Venice's canals.

The protest by local lawyer Mario D'Elia comes amid rising concern over chaotic traffic on the city's Grand Canal, following the Aug 17 death of a German tourist who was crushed when his gondola was hit by a water bus.
On Monday, Venice mayor Giorgio Orsoni issued a long list of proposals for calming the waters, including a clampdown on overtaking, steering too fast and talking on a mobile phone while navigating, as well as drug tests for gondoliers.

Clooney himself appeared to have been rattled by his brief excursion on the city's canals. When asked at the festival about his new space thriller Gravity, he said getting round Venice in a boat was tougher than being lost in space.

Sources at the Venice town hall told the Daily Telegraph that Mr D'Elia's complaint had been passed on to the police and that checks would be made.

A city coast guard official said piloting a taxi in Venice required a professional licence by law.

But one town hall official played down the prospect of Clooney ending the festival in jail. "Photos in the papers do not represent proof, so checks will be made," he said. "But if an offence was committed it would be an administrative offence punishable with a fine. And if it came to that, it would be the taxi owner, not Clooney, who would be fined."
The poor taxi driver!  Now he'll get into trouble for this.

And the attorney gets his "15 minutes" which is why he did this in the first place. As in, "Oh how cool...my name is linked to George Clooney, I'm such a bad a**!"

On one side I agree that the attorney is looking for attention and so on but on the other hand we should not forget that one or two weeks ago a father got killed in Venice to safe his daughter when the boat crashed with another in venice. It was all over the news. Later came out that the taxi/boat driver was on drugs.

Of course it is bad that our G gets bad press now but the taxi driver should have known better. Probably if he does that next year again nobody cares but this year it was too close to that accident.

But well. Soon nobody talks about it anymore  Very Happy

It's always the same someone trying to make a name for them self with George's name. They do it all the time on twitter, if I'm in that kind of mood I tell them to find some volunteer work and make them self useful.

Why wouldnt George have a license? He does drive his boat in Lake Como, which is also in Italy. He would need a license then.

It's just like taxi cab drivers, as in they need special cab licenses.  Those are water taxis and they need special licenses to provide that service.  That's so not every Tom, Dick and George can ferry people around the canals.  They would have to have a regular boat license (that George most likely has too) in order to get a water taxi license.  The driver should NOT have let George navigate the boat.  Both were in error.   But, I also agree that the lawyer tattle-taler is in it for his 15 minutes on George's coattails.

Fifteen minutes, I don't think there are too many news organizations around the globe that haven't chimed in and put their own spin on it. Someone on twitter said it would be great if Darfur got as much press as Miley's dirty dancing etc... Well the same goes here news org. are nothing like they should be anymore. Report real news and leave our George alone, he's paid for his transgression already.
