Man who swam to US from Canada to deliver books is released

DETROIT (AP) — A man who said he swam across the Detroit River from Canada to try to deliver handmade books before Christmas won his release on Tuesday after two months in United States (US) custody. Christopher Sagajllo, 56, was arrested in December 2019 after crossing the river in a wetsuit and landing at a steel company’s property on Zug Island, just south of Detroit. US District Judge Linda Parker sentenced Sagajllo to time served, clearing his return to St Catherines, Ontario, where the British native is a permanent Canadian resident.
