A Florida woman driving golf cart on I-95 arrested while drunk. The 58 -year old woman, identified as Diane Hawk, was arrested on Saturday night in Brevard County.
She was in possession of an open bottle of Jack Daniels and was visibly drunk. She now faces misdemeanor charges of disorderly intoxication in a public place and resisting an officer without violence.
According to the FHP report, a semitruck driver spotted the woman driving in the golf cart in the center lane of Interstate 95 in Brevard County, which is the heart of Florida’s Space Coast. The truck driver used her semi to steer the golf cart driver to the shoulder of the interstate, troopers said.
Once on the shoulder, the truck driver grabbed the keys to the golf cart as the woman tried to drive away. Once troopers arrived at the scene, the woman started arguing with them and insisted she needed her bag. Inside the bag, troopers found the open bottle of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire Whiskey, authorities said.
Fox 35 in Orlando also reports she said she was trying to get to SR-528 and told troopers it was legal to drive a golf cart on I-95 “because she saw it on the news.”
I don’t like driving on 95 in my car! I can’t imagine a golf cart On I-95…while intoxicated!
