Groom a la (golf) cart: Newlywed, best man, stopped for riding drunk in stolen golf cart

The Florida retirement community called The Villages was designed with 90 miles of golf cart paths to take people wherever they so desire - no cars necessary. That doesn't prevent residents from indulging in their love of cars, with custom-designed golf carts that are street legal. CBS

(CBS/AP) CANONSBURG, Pa. - Police say they pulled over a groom and his best man as they drove in a stolen golf cart from a western Pennsylvania country club wedding reception to a hotel.

Peters Township police Chief Harry Fruecht tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review newspaper that Rolling Hills Country Club opted not to press charges for the wedding day off-the-links hijinks on Saturday.

The men were pulled over when an officer saw them driving a cart without headlights in the curb lane of a busy road just before midnight.

The police chief says the men wanted to arrive at the hotel in the golf cart to surprise the other wedding guests, who took a shuttle.

Instead, they both got arrested "a la cart." The pals will have memories of being cited for disorderly conduct and ticketed for public drunkenness.
