(CBS) KISSIMMEE, Fla. - Police say a man tried to rob a Lowe's department store, took off, and then jumped a wall into a nudist colony (stay with us here)...where he stole a golf cart.

As a result of his not-so-excellent adventure, 20-year-old Milton Hodges is charged with attempted armed robbery, attempted battery, and burglary, according to the Osceola County Sheriff's Office.

The sheriff's department said that on Wednesday, Hodges, who is homeless, held a pair of scissors against the neck of a Lowe's cashier in Kissimmee, Fla. The cashier was able to break free and get help while Hodges allegedly went to another cashier and demanded money.

Police say that witnesses then chased Hodges until he scaled the wall into the Cypress Cove nudist resort and stole a golf cart.

Ok, we'll say it - this was not par for the course.

Hodges remains in custody at the Osceola County Jail.
