Teen Arrested For DUI On Golf Cart

ELK GROVE, Calif. (CBS13) — A teen allegedly took a spin alongside a busy road in a golf cart, but when police stopped her, they arrested her for driving under the influence.

Officers spotted the 19-year-old suspect driving on the sidewalk near northbound Franklin Road near Elk Grove Boulevard and noticed “objective signs” of intoxication, according to Elk Grove Police Public Information Officer Chris Trim.

Officers stopped her and arrested her with misdemeanor DUI and being intoxicated while under 21 years of age.

“Even though it is a golf cart, it is a vehicle,” Trim said, noting that it was illegal to drive the cart anywhere but a golf course since it doesn’t have lights or turn signals.

The incident took place at night, authorities said, and posed a danger to any pedestrians who may have been on the sidewalk.

“Someone could have been pontooned; that could mean very serious injuries,” Trim said.

It isn’t clear where the teen obtained the golf cart, but police said she was driving near a golf course when she was arrested.

    No thought that golf cart cam from Valley High private golf club. That so-called private affluent community where all the rich kids are spoiled. They should make this girl and parents do some community serves.

      There’s no such thing as a rich “affluent community” in Elk Grove

      You sound illiterate. Learn how to spell and write before you go public again.
      Also, there truly is no affluent area in Elk Grove but there are a lot of wannabes.

    According to MTV, its socially acceptable now for teens to drink, do drugs, have sex, and of course get pregnant and have your own TV show.

    “Someone could have been POTOONED!” this is not funny to who ever is laughing. the police were just doing their job and protecting the citizens of Elk Grove.

  • There must be something in the water

    People get DUI’s all the time for riding their bicycles while intoxicated. The golf cart, although humerous, is potentially more harmful than a bike. I think she should get the same consequence that would come from driving a car drunk down the sidewalk with no lights on.

    Yeah, and what about her parents,where they at the same party!


    You Kids, STAY OFF MY GRASS!
