Man torches $400 million nuke sub; Navy’s budget struggles for air – CNN.com

(CNN) — Casey James Fury simply didn’t want to be at work, and in the process cost the Navy nearly a half-billion dollars and one attack submarine.
Fury admitted to setting fire to the USS Miami, a nuclear sub, in May 2012 while it was in dry dock. He was sentenced to 17 years in federal prison in March and ordered to pay $400 million in restitution — roughly the cost of the damage.
The Navy won’t see anything close to that amount from Fury, of course, but neither will it from Uncle Sam.
