DUI in a stolen motorized Wal-Mart shopping cart
Source: The Napa Valley Register

Marcos Urbano may have taken Wal-Marts customer service a little too far.

Around 9 p.m. Tuesday, a Napa police officer spotted something unusual driving toward him in the northbound fast lane of Soscol Avenue, north of Lincoln Avenue.
As he approached the object, he discovered it was a motorized shopping cart for the disabled, worth $3,000 from Wal-Mart on Lincoln Avenue.

The officer stopped the driver Urbano who apparently had driven the cart from the store northbound on Soscol, police said.
Urbano, 24, of Napa, was arrested on suspicion of felony grand theft, driving under the influence and not possessing a valid drivers license.

It was a dangerous situation. The cart doesnt have any lights and it was dark, and he was in the fast lane of the roadway, Napa Police Sgt. Tom Pieper said.

2. It was really Cheney...
After swallowing down the cheapest wine he could find, he stumbled into a walmart, said 'fuck you' to a lady, kicked her out of the cart and drove off.
