Woman arrested after using golf cart as weapon
Look both ways before you cross in front of a golf cart.
A 41-year-old "visibly intoxicated" woman was arrested last week for purposely hitting and dragging another woman 15 yards with her golf cart, according to news-journalonline.com of Daytona Beach, Fla. A passenger in Pearce's golf cart told deputies Pearce was behind the wheel when she noticed Boylan. The witness told police that Pearce said, "Oh, there's the (expletive) . . . I'm going to run her over," and, then, she drove the cart straight into Boylan. Another witness saw Boylan being dragged and ran alongside the cart, trying to engage the brake until the cart finally stopped, the sheriff's report states. Boylan told deputies Pearce cursed at her as she lay injured on the ground, and then Pearce fled in another golf cart. After Boylan was taken to Florida Hospital Flagler to be treated for her injuries, deputies found Pearce "visibly intoxicated" at her home, the report states. Before she was arrested, Pearce claimed Boylan had walked in front of her golf cart and, then, asserted to the deputy that he would've done the same thing had he been in her shoes, the report states. Pearce was arrested and charged with aggravated battery. She was released on $5,000 bail.
