Ky. Man Arrested For Using Golf Cart In Robbery

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.

    You think that a man who crashes a golf cart into a store, steals beer, then drives off on a golf cart is an IDIOT? JOIN THE "CLUB."
