BROOKSVILLE, FL -
Brooksville Police say they've arrested a man who was driving drunk -- inside a Walmart.

Timothy Carr of Brooksville is facing charges of disorderly intoxication and felony retail theft. Police say Sunday night, just before 9 o'clock, they found Carr inside the Walmart at 7305 Broad Street. Investigators say he was drunk, and driving around the store on a motorized shopping cart. They say he had removed an alcoholic beverage from a shelf, and was drinking it, while knocking other items off the shelves.

Guess anything involving a moving object can get you a DUI.

1. Not to get technical, but it looks like he's being charged with "disorderly intoxication" and

"felony retail theft".

I don't know if they could charge him with a DUI. Interesting legal question.

2. I have heard of people being charged with DUI

on bicycles and lawn mowers. Granted, its unusual and involves other extenuating circumstances.

3. Twice I have had clients who got DUIs on lawn mowers.

Those big riding lawn mowers are very common down here.
I have had 2 clients arrested for DUI and sent into my treatment program for riding the mowers, drunk, on the highway, to the "package" store ( liquor store) for more booze.
Both gentlemen protested their arrests, they felt that since their driver's license had been revoked, they were being legally creative by using the lawn mowers.
In the first case, the arresting officer pointed out that since it was at night, and the mower had no lights,
and the drunk driver had neglected to raise the mower blade as he rode down the center line....
in the 2nd incidence, the drunk had driven on the side of the road.

True stories.

5. The first one was when I worked in Lake City, Fla

the other one was here in Alabama.

The small town I live in now voted, about 9-10 years ago, to go "wet" ( allowing booze to be sold)
There are people here who are STILL mad as hell about that vote.
I figure it does cut down on lawn mower drives.
