Weird golf news of the week: Golf carts don't make good getaway cars

December 19, 2013

This just in: using a golf cart as your mode of transportation for fleeing a crime scene isn't the smartest move. And doing it at night only makes it worse.

A burglar in Australia found that out the hard way, according to The West Australian. The 20-year-old man broke into a storage shed at the Royal Fremantle Golf Club on Wednesday night. Hopping in a golf cart, the man avoided arrest at first -- until he crashed into a bunker.


The man was tracked down by a police dog and arrested. The report didn't mention if he suffered injury, but his golf cart decision will hurt him more when he goes to court. He now faces charges for aggravated burglary and stealing a motor vehicle. Again, not smart.
