A Kentucky man faces charges for using a golf cart to crash through a storefront in Arkansas to steal several cases of beer.
Police in Hot Springs arrested 24-year-old Alejandro Cortez-Sanchez of Florence, Ky., after he allegedly crashed into the El Alamo Store on Christmas Day.
When officers arrived, they spotted a suspect motoring away in a golf cart and gave chase. Cortez-Sanchez stopped and was arrested.
Several cases of beer were recovered from the cart and returned to the store owner.
Cortez-Sanchez was still being held Tuesday in the Garland County Jail on $8,000 bond. He faces felony counts of theft and commercial burglary and a misdemeanor count of fleeing.
