Did they read it it’s Miranda rights?...............
They did and the ship stood mute.
Seriously though, “arresting” (actually I believe the term is “libeling,” but that might now be anachronistic) a ship is just a fancy term for putting a lien on a piece of movable property that can be used to compensate a plaintiff for damages done by that property. The intent is to keep it in the jurisdiction of the controlling court.
you could always arrest a ship because a ship can leave the jurisdiction and generally is the only asset of significance. The ship owner could bond out after a hearing.
There should be no “ “ around arrest of a ship. The marshal service is specifically tasked with this duty.
Of course now all the blowdryer news readers will give fluf stories about this new thing.
