But a Maryland lawyer's time at a creek was on behalf of his client.
Washington County Assistant Public Defender Charles Bailey went fishing for evidence.
He used a magnet to pull a gun from Antietam Creek in just 30 minutes.
The recovered gun backs up his client's story about an armed robbery.
Prosecutors promised a reduced sentenced for the suspect's cooperation.
Bailey tells a local paper his client gets a jail term of 18 months instead of four years.
