Florida State Police say they arrested a woman for driving a golf cart on I-95 while intoxicated last Saturday. Troopers also found a bottle of alcohol in the woman’s purse. Investigators say 58-year-old Diane Hawk was stopped and questioned by troopers after she was spotted riding a golf cart down the side of the highway.
A truck driver had stopped to see if the woman needed help and was still on the scene when police arrived. He told police that the woman had passed out behind the wheeel when he decided to pull over and help. The truck driver went on to tell troppers tht the woman was able to pull the golf cart off of the road and onto the shoulder before they arrived. He also removed the keys from the cart so the driver coul not leave. Troopers reported that Hawk was combative during their investigation and slurred her speech. They also said she had trouble finding her identification, first handing them two cards that were not her license. When asked why she was on the highway, the woman reportedly told them that she was trying to get to another road and she needed to cross I-95 to get there.
After the woman’s arrest, troopers cuffed and placed her in the back of the cruiser. Upon further investigation, an open bottle of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire Whiskey was found in her purse. Hawk now faces charges of DUI and resisting an officer without violence. Source: ClickOrlando.com
