Florida Man Arrested for DUI Inside Wal-Mart


Police in Brooksville, Florida say a man they arrested Sunday night was driving under the influence inside a local Wal-Mart. Employees at store called the police to report the incident. Police arrived to find Timothy Carr operating a motorized shopping cart while consuming and alcoholic beverage he took from a Wal-Mart shelf. Carr was also bumping into shelves and knocking items onto the floor.

When police approached him, Carr admitted that he did not have money to pay for the beverage he had taken from the shelf. Carr was arrested, and it was discovered that he had two prior convictions for retail theft. He is being held on $2,150 bond at the Hernando County Jail.

This is not the first time someone has been arrested for operating a motorized form of transportation. In 2012, a man was arrested for driving a Zamboni while intoxicated. Also, in 2009, an Ohio man was arrested for driving a motorized bar stool. In Minnesota though, a man was convicted of a DUI while he was riding his Segway, but that decision was recently overturned.
