    Great white shark reported at 'Jaws' filming site

    The island where "Jaws" was filmed had a real-life shark scare Thursday, when an unconfirmed sighting of a great white forced the closure of two beaches.

    South Beach on Martha's Vineyard was closed for a short time, and swimmers were kept out of the water at State Beach in Edgartown, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation said.

    A plane was dispatched to try to confirm the sighting, but no shark was spotted, said Lisa Capone, a spokeswoman for the state Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.

    Why do people do things like this?

    A 60-year-old Boston man is facing a charge of disturbing the peace for allegedly concocting a story about a shark sighting off a Martha's Vineyard beach Thursday morning.

    From the article:

    "The island's South Beach had closed earlier in the morning, after lifeguards reported possibly spotting a great white."

    So maybe there was one after all. The lifeguards reported the shark before the man's hoax.
